The Gatton College of Business and Economics and the Don & Cathy Jacobs Executive Education Center are pleased to present the 13th annual Supply Chain Forum.

This year's forum will bring together supply chain leaders who are practitioners, academics, and consultants. We are placing emphasis on demystifying data science and supply chain digitalization by presenting best practices from companies well into their journey as well as panel discussions with companies and consultants in the early stages of their own supply chain digitalization path.

 The purpose of the Supply Chain Forum is to promote Supply Chain learning between the Gatton College of Business and Economics and community leaders, connect Gatton Masters candidates and alumni with supply chain leaders in the community and to encourage community partnerships with Gatton's Professional Master's Programs.
