Two to three times per semester, the supply chain management faculty host a top supply-chain management executive to speak to 200-300 students currently enrolled in supply chain management courses. This serves the dual purpose of allowing students to interact with a top supply chain management executive and understand current SCM issues, while giving the executive exposure to Miami's SCM students. Most of the executives represent companies who actively recruit Miami supply chain students for job opportunities.
