Keeping pace with the ever-changing manufacturing industry
Manufacturers are caught in an ongoing revolution that requires them to consistently invest in their facilities, staff, and automation to keep up with competitors. As soon as they progress forward, the bar moves again.
The IU Kelley School Center for Excellence in Manufacturing tracks this revolution and monitors trends to provide business leaders insight into this ever-changing industry. Our center finds and illuminates the most effective trends for companies while helping our students develop the skills that managers need.
An increasing number of undergraduate and MBA students who study supply chain management are pursuing careers in manufacturing. We help them develop the understanding, vision, and flexibility necessary to enter this industry and lead these companies into the future.
