I think each of us would like to go back to school, it was the best of times, we went to classes, fool around, studied, and now I study at the university, and I have very little free time, on my weekends I work in a company at Edusson and help students I wish I could go back to school.

While I wouldn't say that our research covered that topic specifically, I think the fact that companies are turning to invest in this area perhaps gives an indicative response.  While one sees "logistics" tracks in MBA coursework, there is limited breadth (though superb depth, at least here in the U.S.) in terms of providing advanced SCM coursework.  I know that I've personally been able to take advantage of short (week to two week) courses that these institutions offer.

Supply chain functions have also moved up in corporations with many companies now elevating the top executives in that division to C-Level. In addition, many professionals in adjunct fields are also migrating to the supply chain side. These would include senior engineers with design background as well as folks in engineering manufacturing, sales and marketing and finance. With such a wide range of background and a wide range of fields to integrate it would make sense to invest more in developing these folks to have common goals and common operating understanding.

As part of your research did you discover many university courses tailored to advanced supply chain management (in the way an EE grad is a good fit for an EE design job). In my experience the folks performing this function arrived in their discipline after a variety of other job functions.  It would be good to learn if this important discipline is being adequately covered in our universities.
