Close to Silicon Valley, which is arguably the technology capital of the world, the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) is well known for developing leaders in the field of technology and for its tech investment. However, the GSB is not as well known for its investment in resources dedicated to the manufacturing sector, which include the Global Supply Chain Management Forum and the Product Realization Network.
The Global Supply Chain Management Forum brings together researchers who document, develop and propagate innovation and best practices in global supply chain management. The Product Realization Network is a group of faculty and industry professionals dedicated to educating students about the creation of products and the organizations that make them possible. The network brings students together with professionals in the manufacturing industry for experiential opportunities that include site visits, guest lectures, workshops and internships. Supply chain is a management niche—one that can certainly be “filled” at Stanford.
