    deliverables of the highest quality.
  • Access faculty comprising world’s thought leaders in supply chain, who place Krannert among the top-ranked supply chain programs in the nation.
  • Build your company’s reputation as an employer of choice for Krannert students and see in-depth how students on your project team might meet your future hiring needs.

What makes for a good project from a corporate partner?

  • Projects may be on a variety of topics related to operations management, including strategic sourcing, distribution planning, logistics, facility layout, location strategy, inventory management, production planning, quality management, sustainability, etc.
  • Projects should focus on analysis of data to reach a managerial recommendation.
  • Projects should be of a scope manageable for a team to complete in a single term.
  • Corporate partners should be able to provide information as needed to student teams and be responsive to questions throughout the duration of the project (students and faculty assigned to a project will sign non-disclosure agreements as required).
  • Partnering companies need not be local. Projects outside of the Greater Lafayette Area may be completed remotely or may include a combination of travel and remote work, as negotiated prior to the project kick-off.
