Mapping Success: MS SCM Online Key to Ron Wallace’s Successful Career Transition
This story is the first in a new series, Mapping Success, which shares how the Global Supply Chain Institute and UT’s supply chain management education programs impact the lives and careers of students and professionals in the industry. Read about Ron Wallace, who was hired by American Health Network, a part of Optum, as a sourcing and procurement manager two months before graduating.
“The professors at UT really set themselves apart. Not only are they constantly in contact with industry professionals in supply chain and throughout the C-suite, which allows them to stay relevant, but they also take the time to care and develop relationships with them so you can continue talking with them (which I do, by the way) even long after graduation.”
CEO & PRESIDENT,

The results-oriented culture, leading faculty and awe-inspiring network of industry partners is what drew me to UT Knoxville, and GSCI has further elevated that experience, creating the go-to place for those wanting to define the future of how business is done.”
“The Global Supply Chain Institute offers companies a unique opportunity to engage with supply chain faculty, learn from their peers and enrich the educational experience for supply chain students. Through these partnerships, organizations gain priority access to critical supply chain talent and benefit from rigorous, yet practical, research focused on solving the most pressing problems of our time.
