Graduate students study global supply chain in Rome

Eighteen MBA and supply chain graduate students studied abroad in Rome in summer 2017.

Beginning in May 2017, a group of 18 MBA and Supply Chain graduate students led by Quinlan professors John Nicholas and Michael Hewitt traveled to Rome for a class on global supply chain management. 

The first and last class sessions were held in Chicago, and the other four sessions held in Rome. While in Rome, the class visited the pasta production facility of Barilla Foods in Ascoli Piceno and the nearby wine production facility of Paolini & Stanford Winery. The visits included tours of production facilities, talks with company managers, and samples of the products. 

Students also visited the Vatican Museum and other historic sites, restaurants, and trattorias, and experienced the festive local nightlife, which was made easy by the Loyola Rome Center’s proximity to downtown Rome and nearby bus routes.
