About the Forum

Housed within the Graduate School of Business, the Forum brings together faculty and students from multiple schools, departments, and disciplines within Stanford University to manage research projects and disseminate learning in partnership with member companies from industry.

Research projects focus on solving problems important to Forum members that are also highly relevant to the greater global business community. They may be structured as theoretical or model-based research, empirical research, or detailed field-based studies. 

The Forum hosts events throughout the year open to Forum members and guests, featuring speakers and panelists who are thought leaders in the field of supply chain strategy. 

The Forum has partnerships with universities in Europe and Asia: The European Supply Chain Forum at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands and the Center for Marketing and Supply Chain Management at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).  Forum members may attend events at our partner universities and enjoy extensive networking opportunities with their member companies.
