Campus News | Monday, February 26, 2018

The Supply Chain Management department is teaching Supply Chain Management principles to high school students in a unique internship program.

The Abercrombie & Fitch (A&F) Junior Achievement Supply Chain Internship program introduces high school students to the field of supply chain management. A&F tested the concept last year, and asked Columbus State to participate. Two students participated, and after receiving positive feedback, A&F decided to expand the internship this year.

Columbus State faculty and staff volunteers travel to A&F to teach a one-hour supply chain management classes covering basic theory and terminology. They also show videos and relate the lesson to what the students are doing at A&F.

In addition to taking the Columbus State-led classes, the students learn about quality programs and data analytics, work in different departments, and learn about personal finance and budgeting, job search techniques, communication, and conflict management from Junior Achievement.

The classes start Thursday, March 1 and then occur every Tuesday through April 24.
