The 2016 UNIBusiness John Deere Supply Chain Forum, held on February 24, was an event you didn't want to miss! With over 100 business professionals in attendance, students had the opportunity to network and ask specific questions regarding the importance of internships and company attractiveness to a panel of managers and current Supply Chain students.

The Forum also consisted of an intriguing speech given by Peter Hirthe, Senior Trade Development Representative from Port of Milwaukee. Students and business professionals in attendance learned about what it is like to conduct trade on the Great Lakes. Hirthe is a key in North America commercial activity, working at one of the largest hubs in North America.

Christine Schrage, UNIBusiness Instructor of Marketing, along with the UNIBusiness Supply Chain Management Association, worked hard to coordinate this annual networking and educational experience. Thank you to all business professionals and sponsors who helped make this event one to remember!
