What our partners have to say 

"The CSU Supply Chain Management Forum uses a synergistic approach to identifying and overcoming supply chain issues that are constantly changing in our ever-expanding global marketplace. It also enables us to meet with other companies in the community as well as CSU business students to share ideas and best practices from the supply chain. Recently, CSU students collaborated with us on a business solution to help the Denver facility reach its sustainability goal of becoming water neutral. The speakers and participants at the CSU Supply Chain Management Forum provide insight to industry challenges, trends and innovation. Not only do you receive input from many great local companies but also get the latest research from CSU Supply Chain Management staff."

      - Annette Loomis, Senior Program Manager, Conversion Program Management

"The connection to the CSU campus and staff allows us to be more involved in the development of future supply chain professionals. Many of our employees are graduates from CSU and have contributed to the overall success of our company. As a member of the forum we can continue to expand our knowledge base through participation and interaction with CSU professors and students. As supply chains continue to evolve we are constantly looking for new ideas and sharing of best practices. The forum provides the opportunity to not only network with other leading organizations in the area, but also work closely with students on projects and utilize the many resources that CSU has to offer."

      - Justin Pete, Global Supply Chain Director

"I got the opportunity to interview a recent supply chain graduate, network with several, top supply chain students during both breakfast and lunch, hear research presentations by two CSU Professors, and discuss supply chain issues and best practices with other companies – what a great day! I’d like to see more companies involved in the CSU Supply Chain Forum and am looking forward to getting others and possibly some of our suppliers and/or customers involved in subsequent forums."
