Infosys has entered into partnership with the University of Southern California (USC), one of the world’s leading private research universities, to work closely with the Center of Global Supply Chain Management (CGSCM) at the University’s Marshall School of Business. CGSCM will focus on advancing global supply chain management through three core activities - establishing a robust industry network, offering a variety of education programs and performing advanced research.
Supply Chain Management is a growing field and accounts for $10 trillion or roughly 14 percent of the Gross World Product - the United States alone will need over 1,000,000 qualified professionals in this field by 2016. USC Marshall’s CGSCM will offer the first globally integrated Master’s program on supply chain management aligned to its mission of NEAR (Networking, Education and Advanced Research). As a founding member, Infosys in partnership with USC Marshall will play a key role on the CGSCM board to design the Center’s charter of activities and its future growth.
Infosys is a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing solutions. The company enables clients, in more than 30 countries, to stay a step ahead of emerging business trends and outperform the competition.
