MBA in Supply
The effective supply chain has become a new organizational and operational
model for the information age. Supply chain management is a business process
that enables a virtual integration of business partners to achieve new levels of
efficiency and productivity, as well as extraordinary returns to investors. It is also
a major area of teaching and research at Rutgers Business School–Newark and
New Brunswick, which offers an MBA concentration and PhD in supply chain
management with the involvement of the Rutgers Center for Supply Chain
Management and over 50 corporate executives. The center, which enjoys the
participation of a multidisciplinary faculty and industry practitioners, conducts
cutting-edge research and serves as a valuable business resource.

                         The Rutgers Reputation
                         Rutgers Business School–Newark and New Brunswick is an integral part of
                         one of the nation’s oldest, largest, and most distinguished institutions of
                         higher learning—Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Rutgers is
                         one of only 62 select members of the prestigious Association of American
                         Universities. Rutgers Business School has been accredited by AACSB
                         International since 1941.

                         MBA in Supply Chain Management
                         Supply chain management is one of the strategic MBA concentrations at
                         Rutgers Business School. The curriculum was designed by faculty with
                         input from industry experts to ensure that it is both comprehensive and
                         current. All students take “Operations Analysis” as part of the core MBA
                         curriculum. In addition to the required 3-credit course “Supply Chain
                         Strategies,” students electing to concentrate in supply chain management
                         take an additional 12 credits* (any combination) of elective courses in
                         two primary areas of focus: Procurement and Sourcing Management and
                         Supply Chain Technologies.
                         *Part-time students take an additional 9 credits.

                                      perspective to the study of supply chain management. Students take advantage of
                                      Professor Lei's expertise in the classroom, but they also benefit from her continuous
                                      success in developing connections with industry leaders through her role as director
                                      of Rutgers Center for Supply Chain Management. It is largely through her efforts that
                                      Rutgers Business School has attained its well-deserved global reputation of being a
                                      supply chain powerhouse.

  Supply Chain Student Initiative
  Supply chain management students benefit from the program’s cross-functional
  curriculum, enhanced by the school’s ties to industry. The Supply Chain Student
  Initiative (SCSI), led by top students, partners closely with the Rutgers Center for
  Supply Chain Management and local corporations to expose students to industry
  leaders and events. SCSI organizes guest lectures, facility tours, seminars, and
  other hot-topic events throughout the year. Recent activities included:

    I Facility tours of A&P, BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company),
       Liz Claiborne, L’Oréal, Port Elizabeth, and Toys “R” Us
    I Guest lectures by AmerisourceBergen, BASF, Revlon, Roche, and
       Tyco International

  Case Competition
  The Rutgers Center for Supply Chain Management sponsors an annual
  case competition in which students demonstrate their knowledge of
  problem solving and supply chain strategies before a panel of industry
  executive judges. Teams from Rutgers Business School, Rutgers
  School of Engineering, Lehigh University, New Jersey Institute of
  Technology, New York University, and Penn State University have com-
  peted on the Rutgers campus for top honors at this popular event.

  Supply Chain Advisory Board Scholarships
  and Leadership Awards
  Each year, the advisory board of the Rutgers Center for Supply Chain
  Management grants scholarships to MBA students who demonstrate academic
  excellence and commitment to the field of supply chain management. The center
  also presents annual leadership awards to students who have demonstrated
  exemplary leadership and dedication to supply chain management during their
  academic careers.

  Alfred J. Battaglia Memorial Fellowship
  Alfred J. Battaglia, a former Becton, Dickinson and Company executive, was a
  driving force behind the creation of Rutgers’ supply chain management pro-
  gram. After his death, his family, friends, and colleagues at Becton, Dickinson
  and Company created this fellowship.
Graduate Perspectives
“Rutgers Business School closed the gap in my
résumé, which was the need to update my skills to
better cope with tomorrow’s challenges. It also gave
me a better understanding of business processes,
methodologies, and theories for operations I used
to try to do ‘by the seat of my pants.’ I will always
be grateful to the professors and staff at Rutgers for
helping me to achieve my goal of finding a mean-
ingful job while increasing my understanding of the
latest business decision-making processes.”

Chain Management Program, hired by IBM
