UNCG to create supply chain management program

The University of North Carolina-Greensboro has obtained a $76,479 grant to develop a supply chain management program.

Kwasi Amoako-Gyampah, head of the Department of Information Systems and Operations Research at UNCG's Bryan School of Business and Economics, won the grant from the Piedmont Triad Partnership. The program will train business executives in supply chain, logistic and transportation matters.

“The worry is that supply chain and logistics managers are retiring without senior-level managers to take their place,” said Amoako-Gyampah. “Developing a professional program to train managers in the field of SCLTM will help fill a need in the Piedmont Triad Region as it transitions into the new economy.” The first students are expected to enroll in the Fall 2009 semester.

This is an exciting development for North Carolina's Piedmont Triad, which is rapidly becoming a hub for supply chain management. The region already is home to several logistics companies and a major Federal Express hub is scheduled for completion in 2009 at Piedmont Triad International Airport.

In fact, a key factor in Womble Carlyle's decision to start a Supply Chain Management Team was our long-standing presence in the Triad market. The firm has Triad offices in both Greensboro and Winston-Salem.
