Supply Chain Management Network Group

Supply chain and operations management has, in recent years, come to the forefront of business strategic thinking. There are many reasons for this, including the increasingly global nature of business, the acceleration of the business cycle and ever-growing uncertainty in the business operating environment. The practical upshot of this is that the demand for supply chain specialists is at an all-time high, and is expected to grow. 

We have invested significant resources in enhancing the student experience, partnering with businesses and potential employers, and supporting research to expand knowledge in supply chain management. Please visit the links at the left to see what we are doing. For more information or to get involved, please contact Bryan Ashenbaum at ashenbb@miamioh.edu or 513-529-8013

Brewing Industry Field Study

The Supply Chain Craft Brewery Field Study is a winter term program designed specifically for Supply Chain Management students interested in the Supply Chain processes associated with the rapidly evolving U.S. brewing industry. The program, developed and led by Prof. Rocky Newman, explores industry leaders and suppliers in three major US brewery centers: the rocky mountain area (Denver, Golden, and Fort Collins CO), the northwest (Portland and Bend OR, Seattle WA.) and the growing eastern corridor (Ashville NC). The focus of the field study starts with classroom instruction on the history and basic brewing of beer, beer styles, and geographic influences on those styles. Students are also prepped on the business of brewing and the industry wide supply chain that encompasses it. Prior to leaving for the experiential aspect of the field study, students self-select into teams exploring more specific aspects of the brewing supply chain.
