Professional Organizations

There are many professional organizations that are associated with the Supply Chain and Operations Club, and most of them have student membership rates which go up significantly after graduation.

Joining these organizations as a student can provide the following benefits:

  • Low student membership fees or no fee

  • Membership networking and directories

  • Job postings and electronic resume entry

  • Publications offering insight into current issues, useful for interviews

MBAs are urged to get memberships taken care of before graduation as membership cost increases after graduation:
