Teaching supply chain management (SCM) to undergraduates that are not Supply Chain Management majors can be difficult. This often is the case when teaching a business school core course that all majors must take. The motivation of these non-SCM students is sometimes just to pass and move on to their major course of study. Using a number of cases and examples from the real world that the students can relate to may help increase attention and learning. The increased interest level may give students a better understanding of supply chains. This article discusses approaches to teaching the core course with real world applicability, and suggests future research to examine the possible benefits.
