Advisory Board

A group of executive students in class

The Global Supply Chain Institute's Advisory Board, composed of senior leaders from Supply Chain Forum partners, have a formal opportunity to engage and influence our programs. This group regularly meets to help us chart the course for how GSCI can best fulfill its goals. Advisory Board members are also afforded an incredible opportunity for peer-to-peer networking amongst the leading SCM executives globally.

In addition to advice and counsel, Advisory Board members engage with GSCI in the following ways:

  • Partnering with GSCI to improve supply chain practices through SCM assessments, talent development programs, white papers and research.

  • Enrolling employees with the highest potential in executive degree programs.

  • Helping provide our students with real-world experience through internships, student projects and employment opportunities.

Our Advisory Board members represent many leading companies spanning public and private companies of all sizes, cutting through markets and traversing sectors.
