College of Supply Chain Management

Mission Statement

The College of Supply Chain Management is a special interest group of POMS that seeks to create a community for researchers in supply chain management. The college embraces the full spectrum of research paradigms including modeling, empirical and field-based work and facilitates close interaction between academics and practitioners through focused conferences.

It’s time to REGISTER for the POMS supply chain college meeting May 7th in Washington D.C.

The agenda takes advantage of the Washington DC location to focus on productive academic interaction with government entities and think tanks. A goal is to spur better, more relevant research on supply chain-related issues. We have divided the day up into two separate 150-minute themes. During each 150 minute time frame, there will be presentations and facilitated breakout discussions.

Celebrating our 10th anniversary, we are providing a full offsite evening dinner for registered participants. The dinner is in a brewery near the Washington Nationals baseball stadium in the old Navy Yards.
