DCAT/Michigan State University Partnership Program


DCAT is pleased to partner with Michigan State University’s (MSU) Broad College of Business to offer a series of professional development courses in 2022 to employees of DCAT Member Companies.

Developed by faculty members at MSU’s top-ranked Department of Supply Chain Management (U.S. News & World Report, 2022) and DCAT’s Supply Management Committee, and taught by MSU faculty members, the curriculum will give professionals a competitive edge to take on the next era of supply chain management. DCAT’s volunteer-led Supply Management Committee was instrumental in bringing the partnership to fruition.

The DCAT/MSU partnership will offer four education programs in total in 2022, and programs are open to all employees of DCAT Member Companies. Information on upcoming programs will be posted here.

Past program: Supply Chain Digitalization, Business Analytics & Technology Applications

Held during DCAT Week 2022, the first program was presented by Dr. Cheri Speier-Pero, the Ernst & Young Professor in Accounting and Information Systems and Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs at MSU’s Broad College of Business. The three additional programs in 2022 will be held online.

“We are thrilled that DCAT will partner with the world-class faculty at Michigan State’s Department of Supply Chain Management,” said DCAT Executive Director Margaret Timony. “The DCAT organization is committed to providing unique, expert-driven education programs for our Member Companies, and we are pleased to offer this one-of-a-kind learning opportunity with MSU’s Supply Chain Management faculty, who are considered the voice of the Supply Chain Management field, as an added benefit to DCAT Member Companies.”
