Provo — The BYU Marriott School of Management’s global supply chain program was recently ranked No. 6 in the nation by Gartner, a leading research company who has published program rankings for the past decade. This ranking marks the second top-10 standing the program has secured since its inception in 2006.
“We are proud of where the program is headed,” says Tom Foster, business management department chair. “This ranking validates the hard work of our students, the help of our advisory board members and the expertise of our fantastic faculty.”
Gartner evaluates schools based on three categories — program scope, industry value and program size — to determine which will be placed among the top 25. The Marriott also placed No. 2 in the nation in program scope.
“We are equipping our students with the skills they need to succeed on the job,” said Scott Sampson, Marriott School area leader for global supply chain. “Employers find that our students are high caliber and well prepared so they come back and hire again and again.”
Recent success has allowed for relationships to develop with major supply chain employers, and in the coming months the program will meet with more Fortune 500 companies who are looking for new recruits.
