Universities join NAED

Dec. 20, 2001
December 18, 2001 Both schools offer programs in the distribution profession, and now reap benefits from membership in the organization.

The University of Wisconsin at Madison and the University of Alabama at Birmingham have joined the National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED--www.naed.org) as affiliate members for university alliances.

The University of Wisconsin at Madison offers an industrial-distribution program through The Grainger Center. Founded in 1991, The Grainger Center offers both an MBA and MS degree in supply chain management, and coordinates an undergraduate specialization. The curriculum is interdisciplinary and complemented by hands-on experience.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham offers a BA program in industrial distribution. Established in 1990, the program is a joint effort between the School of Business and the School of Engineering, and currently has more than 150 students.

Universities that join the alliance receive benefits including a subscription to The Electrical Distributor magazine, a booth at NAED's annual meeting, exposure on the group's Web site, and access to research archives.

Universities and students also receive discounted registration fees for NAED meetings. More information about the university alliance is available from NAED's Member Services Department, (314) 991-9000.
