Supply Chain Logistics Management Executive Seminar

The James B. Henry Center for Executive Development


This seminar will be offered in-person from May 1 to May 6, 2022 at the James B. Henry Center for Executive Development.


For over 50 years, Michigan State University’s Supply Chain Logistics Management Executive Seminar has been the world’s premier logistics executive seminar.

The seminar combines academic frameworks and real-world examples, including discussion and review of best practice trends. The seminar faculty consists of academic and industry speakers that are thought-leaders in supply chain logistics management. The program is designed for experienced executives whose firms are driving integrated logistics within the context of an overall supply chain strategy.

We hope your organization joins us this year to further develop your supply chain logistics management executive talent.

Critical and Emerging Issues Workshop
