It’s one thing to learn a lesson from a classroom case study that you can apply in your daily job; it’s another thing to consult with a multinational company to solve an actual challenge within its operations.
This is what 15 students in the Evening MBA Program at the IU Kelley School of Business Indianapolis accomplished in the Global Supply Chain and Innovation Enterprise, or gSCIE. Students work on addressing real-world supply chain, manufacturing, and logistics issues at global companies.
“gSCIE is a capstone experience that allows our students the opportunity to leverage all the learnings they had in the Evening MBA Program into a real-life project where they are interacting on a regular basis with large corporations,” said Amrou Awaysheh, assistant professor of operations management and faculty director for gSCIE. "Typically, when large corporations come in to business schools and ask for big, out-of-the-box solutions, it’s unlikely they’ll implement the students’ ideas."
