Supply Chain Accelerator

Overview

Often, supply chain leaders are faced with a tradeoff. To grow and develop our personal or staff expertise comes at the cost of disruption of our day-to-day work. For many, this cost is simply too high to make the investment of time and resources. Penn State Executive Programs aims to address this challenge with our Supply Chain Accelerator. Every aspect of the Penn State Supply Chain Accelerator is designed to teach you practical, immediately actionable concepts you may use to improve supply chain performance through a minimally disruptive, affordable, and value-loaded online format.
