Gartner logoGartner, a leading global research and advisory firm, ranks the TCU Neeley School of Business among the top 20 in North America for both undergraduate and graduate supply chain programs.

TCU Neeley ranks No. 17 for undergraduate supply chain and No. 18 for graduate programs, which includes a Master of Science in Supply Chain Management and an MBA with a supply chain concentration.

The 2022 Gartner Supply Chain University Top 25 Rankings report highlights supply chain programs in the United States and Canada with the best curricula, hands-on learning and internship opportunities, starting salaries, program diversity and size, and industry reputation. The biennial report also serves as a trusted industry source, helping supply chain leaders identify university partners that will strengthen their companies’ talent pipelines.

“Several factors contribute to TCU Neeley’s position in the Gartner rankings, most importantly the depth and breadth of our programs. We provide holistic, end-to-end, in-depth instruction on all aspects of supply chain management: innovation, planning, sourcing, creating, delivering and return,” said Morgan Swink, executive director of the TCU Center for Supply Chain Innovation and the Eunice and James L. West Chair of Supply Chain Management. “We also integrate hands-on, experiential learning opportunities into our programs, partnering with a wide range of organizations to expose students to real-world industry challenges and opportunities.”
