        “Gartner’s most recent ranking is the latest in a series of national accolades for Auburn’s recently established Department of Supply Chain Management. We are very proud of the numerous faculty and staff who have worked so hard to build this department to what it is today,” said Glenn Richey, Harbert Eminent Scholar and Chair of the Supply Chain Management Department at the Harbert College of Business. “In just a few short years – only one year for our graduate program – Auburn’s Supply Chain Management Department has quickly grown to compete with the very best in the nation and is preparing hundreds of students each year to be leaders in the field both nationally and globally.”

        The Harbert College of Business established its Department of Supply Chain Management in 2020 to further expand resources to its long successful supply chain management program. In 2021, the department established its SCM graduate program which quickly emerged as one of the top programs in the nation.

        “These recent top rankings are a testament to the significant efforts that the Harbert College of Business SCM faculty and staff have invested to provide students with more opportunities for quality internships, participation in case competitions, better industry engagement, conference travel, and career fairs, to name a few. We have put a premium on growing and diversifying our faculty and working to generate greater awareness and interest in the supply chain major. We have also invested significant resources to broaden the reach of our Center for Supply Chain Innovation to increase engagement with students and employers and build stronger ties to the SCM program,” said Richey.
