Background: Until recently, Logistics, Procurement and Supply Chain (LPS) was seen as a necessity only. In fact, in many developing economies, businesses the profession is still being treated as a ‘back-office’ function. However, not much has been done to explore and address challenges facing businesses and government successes in these economies due to poor or low LPS expertise.
Objectives: The purpose and key objective of KABARAK UNIVERSITY AND HOP is to demonstrate the critical role played by the Logistics, Procurement and Supply Chain (LPS) functions in businesses, Governments, NGO’s and in general economic successes and development and to reveal the challenges, problems, downturns, non-performances, collapse of many Government functions, projects, industries, companies and private business due to poor Logistics, Procurement and Supply Chain (LPS) management and talent development.
Through partnership with HOP Academy and her GLOBAL Principal Global Partners, KABARAK UNIVERSITY will become a premier source of Supply Chain experts, education, graduate and industry-university partnerships that examines supply chain challenges and practices within firms and across a variety of industrial sectors using an interdisciplinary focus. The goal is to create an internationally-recognized center for thought leadership and expertise in the broad areas of supply chain management research and education. In collaboration with industry, the Institute’s faculty and students will investigate and study applied research questions, facilitate an ongoing dialogue among industry and academic thought leaders, foster student-focused learning initiatives and immersion experiences, and develop new streams of academic knowledge and industry solutions. Such knowledge and research findings will be disseminated in peer-reviewed academic research journals, thought-leadership white papers on emerging issues, best-practice case studies, and peer-to-peer forums and conferences for participating
