“More and more consumers, not just in the US, but around the world, want to be assured that the products they buy were sourced, produced, delivered with as small an environmental footprint as possible. This means companies who sell these products want to ensure their operations and supply chains are sustainable. Our students are future employees, managers, and executives at these companies and they need to be abreast of the latest developments in the field. That is why I am incorporating a module on sustainable operations and supply chain management in my course, MBA 540 Introduction to Operations and Supply Chain Management.”
- Dr. Eda Kemahlioglu Ziya, Assistant Professor, Department of Business Management
