Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to briefly review Supply Chain Management (SCM), as a business discipline, in the Arab world’s academic and industrial environments. With a strong intention by many of the Arab states to diversify their economies, SCM becomes a key facilitator to support emerging industries and local production. SCM education and academic research in the Arab world appear to lag the trend of SCM-enabled business models and strategies of many organizations in the region. In order to support the growing need for SCM knowledge and professionals in the region, universities may need to increase the amount of research and teaching in the SCM discipline.
