“We were so gratified to receive this news and want to thank all the faculty, staff, alumni and students whose efforts made it possible,” said Dr. Marko Bastl, director of the Center for Supply Chain Management. “The supply chain industry is as dynamic and essential as it’s ever been and we need ethical, bold leadership to plot a course for its future. I’m proud to say that many of those leaders have come from Marquette.”
