ASU or UT Knoxville for supply chain


Harry68

Hey all,

I need to make a decision ASAP.... I have to decide between ASU Carey and UT Knoxville. My background is in marketing but I want to make the transition to supply chain. I think I'm biased towards Carey because I am not sure that I want to live in Tennessee, but if UT is the better choice I can tolerate it for 17 months...

I would say that Carey is the typically better choice, at least for most students, given the school's placement in the rankings, along with its reputation, etc.

They're both good for supply chain. But in terms of placements industry-wise, there is some variation: Carey's got great placements in tech firms, Amazon, Intel, etc.; while Knoxville places more in the bread-and-butter supply chain industries: manufacturing, consumer products, even energy.

The other part of this is that Carey grads have better salaries, in general.

Tennessee does better in Gartner's supply chain ranking, it's in third place just behind Penn State and Michigan State:

This doesn't rank MBA programs directly but still something to consider.

Yes, I applied to the Walton school but got dinged. Need to decide between ASU and Knoxville now, these are the only options.
