TCU Neeley’s supply chain graduate program ranks second in the nation behind MIT in a recent ranking by Software Advice, a subsidiary of Gartner. That makes TCU Neeley the highest ranked business school in Texas for earning a graduate degree in supply chain. The only other Texas school ranked is UT-Austin at No. 14.

Professionals in the DFW area looking to expand their supply chain management skills with a graduate degree can choose from a Master of Science in supply chain (part-time) or MBA with a concentration or specialization in supply chain (part-time and full-time) at TCU Neeley. Undergraduate TCU students can choose a supply chain management major. 

“Supply chains have been around about as long as we’ve been manufacturing products and shipping them to different locations to be sold,” wrote Lisa Hedges for Software Advice. “A concept that is slightly newer is the idea that people can go to school to learn about managing supply chains and come out with a bachelor’s or master’s degree establishing them as experts in the field.” 

“Supply chain students at TCU get insight into the customer side of supply chain as well as the logistical side. We focus on how the different elements of the supply chain work together. That’s the power of the supply chain paradigm,” said Morgan Swink, executive director of TCU’s Center for Supply Chain Innovation and the Eunice and James L. West Chair of Supply Chain Management. 

The Center for Supply Chain Innovation supports supply chain academics and provides research, workshops, webinars, forums and hosts an annual conference. The Center also hosts a national case competition for graduate students in supply chain.
