Students and professors from ITESO, a Jesuit university in Guadalajara, Mexico, visit C.H. Robinson as part of an intensive supply chain seminar hosted by Quinlan.

In July, Quinlan hosted 21 graduate students and three professors from ITESO, a Jesuit university in Guadalajara, Mexico, for a one-week intensive supply chain seminar led by John Caltagirone, executive director of Quinlan’s Supply and Value Chain Center and founding director of the Loyola Business Leadership Hub.

The graduate business students work for leading companies in Mexico and are specializing in topics ranging from supply chain to marketing. 

The seminar consisted of morning lectures and afternoon tours of Chicago-area supply chain operations. The students toured four corporate members of the Supply and Value Chain Center:

  • Yaskawa
  • Hu-Friedy
  • C.H. Robinson
  • APICS

The seminar focused on understanding supply chain management and logistics and how it can create customer value, identifying issues and challenges critical to supply chain managers in today's business environment, and analyzing and resolving supply chain problems.
