Operations Club

The Operations Club is dedicated to provide opportunities for our members to learn the fundamental knowledge of Operation, Supply Chain, Logistics, and International Trade, and to network with professionals to better prepare themselves for their future career development.





The Operations Club strives to reduce the distance between the academic and industry environment by educating, advising, and advancing JGSB students. We educate by connecting with industry experts. We advise by providing feedback from supply chain and operations experience. We advance our members by connecting them with JGSB resources.
