How has your Marquette University OSCM Degree helped prepare you for your career?

MY OSCM degree has provided me the strong structural base to build my off of. From the hands-on projects to the guest speakers, the MU OSCM major has provided me insights into the opportunities that the Supply Chain field has. The Supply Chain field thrives on cross functional engagement and collaboration that I believe my time at MU helped prepare me for.

What excites you about the OSCM "Coaches Corner"?

Since graduation, I have tried to think of ways to help the OSCM program continue to grow and become stronger. The opportunity to help interact with current students and provide feedback to them in a relaxed and informal setting fits a need perfectly. This is something that I wish I had available during my time at MU, and I think this will help the students become more passionate about the Supply Chain industry.
