Additional Information: The goal is to show relevancy bringing real world reference to our students from every day activities. Students are given hands on experience through visit to industry facilities to explore how SCM management is imperative to every business, large and small. The weeklong program is a way for the Rutgers professors to market the business school and the supply chain management major to some of the best high school students in Newark and neighboring cities. Students who are accepted and choose to attend Rutgers Business School will receive three credits for the SCM session toward a Rutgers Business degree along with a stipend and an opportunity to open many doors. With the growth of the SCM programs, and considering the strong in-house expertise and severe talent shortage in the job marketplace, there is a strong need to provide high school students early SCM training. This will not only allow these students to get themselves a real-world hands-on exposure to this field and higher employment possibilities, but also encourage them in their selections of colleges and majors. From Rutgers perspective, this would facilitate student recruiting and identify and attract talented students early. Inspired by this idea and the financial support from Schindler Elevator Corporation, one of the program’s corporate sponsors funded the venture in 2015. An outreach was directed to guidance counselors in Newark high schools and launched the SCM training for high school students the first time in summer 2015 (Rutgers Today, July 6, 2015). This program has grown immensely and as of last year, there were a total of 86 students from twenty –six high schools in New Jersey and New York in attendance. Are you interested in applying for this life-changing opportunity for your high school friends and family?
