Rutgers Business School Executive Education has announced it is rolling out an accelerated certificate program that will provide insight on the effect of IoT on the next generation of supply chain strategy.

The Mini-MBA Supply Chain in a Digitized Network program will be offered April 11-15 in New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA. Rutgers will also expand this program to include the Asian and Pacific Coast (APAC) countries.

The supply chain discipline is not insulated from digital disruption that is impacting every area of the enterprise. In order to make the best of supply chain effectiveness, companies and leaders must relook at their current business models and infuse technological capabilities that facilitate a proactive approach for their teams.

Jackie Scott, global program director of Rutgers Business School Executive Education, said: “IoT is profoundly reshaping the supply chain and reinventing the entire industry. Many companies have focused their IoT strategy on how the technology can cut costs and improve efficiency. However, IoT can also serve as a foundation for greater differentiation and innovation.

“Supply chain leaders must out think the challenges ahead to gain competitive advantage,” added Scott. “Companies that embrace new technology will be better positioned to unlock fresh revenue streams, provide better customer experiences, and create modern operating models that will drive efficiency and create real value.”
