Since its inception as the initial Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals University Cooperative Program in 1967, Michigan State University's Supply Chain Logistics Management Executive Seminar has been committed to being the world's premier logistics executive seminar.

Blending a combination of academic rigor and real-world experience, the seminar is designed for experienced executives whose firms have begun or plan to implement integrated logistics within the context of an overall supply chain strategy.  Emphasis is placed on supply chain integration, performance measurement, supply chain technology and analytical applications, global operations, organizational dynamics and the lessons learned from world class logistics organizations.  The seminar also reviews best practice trends and opportunities.  The seminar faculty consists of academic and industry speakers that are thought-leaders in supply chain logistics management.


  • To discuss how logistics and integrated supply chain can contribute to firm competitiveness
  • To understand how logistics theory, dynamics, structure, technology and principles can be synthesized to achieve superior supply chain and logistics performance
  • To assist managers transitioning from managing specific functional areas, such as transportation and warehousing, toward the challenges of logistics planning and operational integration
