The Research Centers at Smeal offer a world-class resource for knowledge creation. Our corporate partners bring us their most pressing business concerns in areas such as supply chain management, business-to-business marketing, and entrepreneurship. We then assemble a community of leading researchers from Smeal, Penn State, and other institutions, as well as senior executives from sponsor companies and government organizations, to address these challenges.
Working together, we achieve what no enterprise can do as efficiently alone. That is, we shape the business practices that enable organizations to achieve competitive advantages in efficiency, innovation, market presence, and ultimately, profitability.
