I dont know, supply chain people I deal with at work are a lot more on the procurement side, much more operations background with some finance. I dont know how much IT plays a role in it unless you are looking at supply chain at a IT company. I know a lot of it is sourcing iand logistics ssues, and that type of stuff. Think Apple trying to get all the parts and assembly for the Ipad together.
Also very siloed area, if you are in there you are in that for life. Its not like finance where you could move across the company. So you better like it because it will be harder to get out of or switch than some less specialized areas.
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.
