FEATURE Building a Sustainable Supply Chain Workforce "S BY GARY FORGER, MHI MANAGING DIRECTOR OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT upply chain is the 'it' degree of the moment."

She has a couple of metrics. On the supply side, Stiffler says the student population continues to grow. Rapidly. Her research shows that the number of full-time undergraduates in supply chain is up 56% since 2011. At the graduate level, there's a 34% increase in students during the same period for both part- and full-time students.
