For over 25 years, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Supply Chain Forum has been providing a platform for companies to learn, network and recruit. This event is held twice a year and offers industry practitioners the opportunity to meet students, benchmark with peers and learn about the most recent and impactful innovations in the field. The Forum’s corporate membership stands at nearly 70 organizations. Forum events typically draw around 350 practitioners, plus students and faculty, offering corporate partners the chance to interact with other attendees and make meaningful industry connections.

To provide the Global Supply Chain Institute’s Supply Chain Forum members a unique opportunity to learn, network and recruit, the Forum affords participants priority access to top-ranked supply chain management (SCM) faculty and students at the Haslam College of Business and the largest assembly of corporate partners of any university-based SCM program.
