Smeal Supply Chain Undergradute Program Ranks First in the Country Yet Again

Just when you thought Penn State couldn’t be first in one more thing, Gartner Inc. ranked the Smeal College of Business’ supply chain undergraduate program first in the country for the third time.

Gartner Inc., the world’s self-proclaimed front runner of information technology research, was among the bunch of supply chain practitioners and academics asked to rate U.S. supply chain education providers. The few criteria they had with which to do so included industry value, program size, program scope, data on enrollment, offerings, and faculty size, according to the original article on Penn State News.

Gartner ranked Penn State’s supply chain undergraduate program first both in 2009 and 2011. These rankings are part of Gartner’s larger research project identifying skill and talent gaps in the supply chain industry.

A few higher-ups in the Smeal College of Business commented on the good news, including Charles H. Whiteman, the John and Beck Surma Dean of Smeal.

“We work hard to stay on the forefront of the supply chain education and research, through our leading faculty and our connections with industry through the Center for Supply Chain Research,” he said to Penn State News. “This brings a welcome confirmation from our peers and the industry that we continue to produce some of the top graduates in supply chain.”

Gartner will also produce a graduate education ranking will be released in the coming months.

The SCM World’s Chief Supply Chain Officer Report of 2014 ranked Smeal College of Business supply chain undergraduate education third in national supply chain education providers and the Smeal College of Business as a whole has also been ranked first overall (university-wide) by The Wall Street Journal, according the Smeal College of Business website
