The Global Supply Chain Executive MBA at the University of Tennessee

This 12-month program is designed for global executives and supply chain management leaders working in organizations whose supply chain performance is fundamental to business success.

Two internationally ranked global universities in the United States, Europe, and Asia have partnered with the University of Tennessee to offer a unique Global Supply Chain Executive MBA. This 12-month program is designed for global executives and supply chain management leaders working in organizations whose supply chain performance is fundamental to business success. 

“In conversations with industry leaders, we discovered that they had a pressing need for a program that provided an MBA education yet had a much more comprehensive focus on global supply chain management, leadership, and culture,” said David Ecklund, director of the Global Supply Chain Executive MBA.  “We have invested over four years in the development of an unparalleled learning experience with a global scope and structure specifically aimed at the business, supply chain, leadership, and cultural challenges executives face in today’s global business environment.”

The program carves a unique niche between more traditional executive MBA programs and technical degrees in supply chain management.  Unique features of the program include its global campus and faculty, modular structure consisting of four two-week residence periods, and an integrated transnational leadership development program that prepares business leaders to transcend nationalities, cultures, and countries to successfully navigate the complexities of global business.  “At the core of the program is a commitment to applied learning.  Each student completes a thesis-level customized project that is expected to deliver back to the sponsoring organization at least $1 million (USD) within three years of project implementation,” said Ted Stank, Bruce Chair of Excellence in Business and member of the program’s core faculty. 

“We have an outstanding student profile in our 2013 program with executives from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America.  Industries represented include aerospace, construction machinery, consulting, consumer luxury goods, contract logistics, energy, global pharmaceuticals, healthcare, international food & beverage, retail, and technology. The diversity of educational backgrounds, work experience, industries, and cultures will further contribute to an outstanding learning experience,”
said Ecklund. 

“This program represents a significant milestone,” said Matt Myers, Nestle Professor and Associate Dean of Executive Education for the University of Tennessee’s College of Business Administration.  “Our collaboration is enabling each university to bring its unique strengths and capabilities to the program.”

Partners in the program include ESSEC Business School; The Central European University (CEU) Business School; and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

“Becoming a partner university in the Global Supply Chain Executive MBA complements our extensive experience in executive education, expansion of our programs in both Europe and Asia, and our ongoing commitment to globalization issues,” said Philippe-Pierre Dornier, Dean of ESSEC Executive Education and head of ESSEC’s department of operations and supply chain management.  “ESSEC Business School has been training business leaders since 1907 and was the first school outside of North America to earn AACSB accreditation.”

Yusaf Akbar, associate professor of management and academic director of MBA Programs at the CEU Business School, believes the transnational leadership component of the program really sets it apart.  “We often say that doing business in our part of the world is much more than just business.  In transitional economies, the rapid changes in society and political structures have a much more urgent impact on business decision making.  Our focus at the CEU Business School on transnational leadership adds elements of sociology, political science, and regional studies into the classic business school curriculum so that our graduates are better able to identify the barriers and opportunities across a range of rapidly developing markets and then lead their businesses through those changes to capture profitable growth.” 

Ideal candidates for the program are executives with at least 10 years of management experience, a current position of manager, director, or higher in the organization, and responsibility for business activities outside their respective home countries.  “We are looking for students who have a diversity of industry backgrounds and the additional experience and perspective that comes from both living and working outside their home countries,” said Ecklund.
