I first became aware of the idea of a supply chain in my first year of my undergraduate degree, before that I was only really familiar with the term ‘operations’, which I soon discovered that academically this is quite a different concept. My interest in supply chains quickly grew and I begin to further study the concept by studying it at masters level. While as a consumer I am a part of many supply chains, I am involved in an educational supply chain here at Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG). This involves reading/researching to gather knowledge, concepts and ideas and then distribute these to students, who will then go on to put these ideas into practice and even further disseminate these throughout their lives.
