The Advantage of Haslam Graduates
The Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, prepares students with a broad, cross-disciplinary approach to supply chain management (SCM). We graduate supply chain professionals capable of managing and controlling boundary-spanning activities and processes both within the firm and across the global supply chain.
Curriculum Connected to Industry
Our faculty, composed of both leading scholars and experienced practitioners, teach our applied curriculum to equip students with the hands-on expertise necessary to strengthen your team. Our industry partnerships ensure our curriculum is always ahead of industry trends and best practices. You can learn more about our programs to see how our students and graduates could benefit your organization.
Over 1,400 Supply Chain Management Students
Supply chain management was the No. 1 major at UT based on the number of degrees granted in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Currently, we have over 1,400 supply chain management students enrolled in our programs.
"UT SCM students have a much faster ramp and better real-world experiences than other SCM graduates. It's why we invest so much in UT talent and alumni at Dell."
- Rob McIntosh, Senior Vice President, Dell Global Fulfillment, Logistics and Trade
