Gartner, Inc. has released the findings from its biennial Top 25 North American Supply Chain Undergraduate Programs report. Fifty-five institutions in the U.S. and Canada participated in the survey.
The report is intended to support chief supply chain officers (CSCOs), heads of supply chain strategy and supply chain HR partners to identify the programs best equipped to support their growing talent needs.
“During the course of the pandemic, the higher education landscape changed massively,” said Dana Stiffler, distinguished VP analyst with the Gartner Supply Chain practice. “Our methodology changed as well. While our 2020 ranking only included on-campus and hybrid programs, this year’s ranking also includes 100% online programs.”
The ranking was revealed at Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo, taking place in Orlando, Fla. through Wednesday.
The University of Arkansas led the undergraduate ranking at No.1, retaining its position (see Table 1). The University of Tennessee moved up from the sixth position in 2020 to the No. 2 position in 2022. The University of South Carolina was ranked at No. 3. “The University of Arkansas retained the pole position – they have developed an excellent curriculum and strong industry partnerships,” Stiffler said.
Auburn broke back into the top 5, jumping 3 spots to secure No.4 position. Rutgers University remained a mainstay of the top 5 undergraduate programs for the third cycle in a row at No.5.

In total, 55 undergraduate programs provided complete RFI responses for degree programs.
