- Curricula in the Top 25 have standardized. Supply chain leaders must use other criteria, such as experiential learning, DEI initiatives, location, or cost to determine best education partner for their organization.
- The top programs tend to be more competitive and expensive, so there is an incentive for leaders to look beyond the top 15.
- In accordance with recent developments in supply chain, many programs put a bigger focus on sustainability and risk management.
