Industry and academic collaboration is the key to success
At Kinaxis, we recognize the critical role that higher education plays in ensuring we have the ideas, innovation and skills necessary to propel the modern supply chain forward.
By partnering with our academic colleagues, we can share the fascinating and complex problems supply chains are facing today. Together, we can characterize relevant topics and problems for the classroom, highlight rewarding careers paths in supply chain, and identify challenges and the research required to address them.
We believe it is our responsibility to contribute current, practice-based examples to academia so students can enter the workforce better prepared and professors can contribute to research with an understanding of today’s trends and challenges.
