    Duquesne’s Supply Chain Management Program: One of the Top 25 in the Nation

    Duquesne University is the only school in the Pittsburgh region to have its Supply Chain Management Program selected as one of the nation's Top 25 Programs.

    The list, compiled by Camcode inventory tracking solutions, includes mainly public schools from across the country. Duquesne was among the handful of private institutions on the list, which included only Penn State, Lehigh and DU as notable programs in Pennsylvania.

    Selection of these top programs, according to Camcode, was "based on the depth and breadth of the educational offerings, including access to multi-disciplinary opportunities for students and ability to participate in research in the supply chain management field."

    Programs also were included based upon the recommendation of the Institute for Supply Management and other leading associations.

    "One of the strengths of Duquesne's Supply Chain Management (SCM) Program is being offered by an accredited business school," said Dr.  John Mawhinney, director of SCM programs and assistant professor in the Palumbo•Donahue School of Business.

    "Our students-and their future employers-also benefit from the comprehensive scope of SCM content and best practices provided by passionate faculty who bring strong academic and professional experiences to a program based on a foundation of ethics, collaboration, globalization, technology and sustainability.

    "I congratulate our faculty and industry partners who have supported the development, growth and promotion of our programs."

    Duquesne University

    Founded in 1878, Duquesne is consistently ranked among the nation's top Catholic research universities for its award-winning faculty and tradition of academic excellence. The University is nationally ranked by U.S. News and World Report and the Princeton Review for its rich academic programs in 10 schools of study for nearly 10,000 graduate and undergraduate students, and by the Washington Monthly for service and contributing to students' social mobility. Duquesne is a member of the U.S. President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction for its contributions to Pittsburgh and communities around the globe. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Princeton Review's Guide to Green Colleges acknowledge Duquesne's commitment to sustainability.
