GSCM Advisory Board

Rider’s Global Supply Chain Management Program is truly a partnership between our University and the GSCM industry. Together, we focus on giving Rider students the knowledge and skills — as well as practical experience — necessary to enter the supply chain management profession and ultimately become leaders in the field.
