About Us

SKEIN, the Operations and Supply Chain Club of IIMU is driven by the sheer passion for Strategic and Operational thinking. Inspired by our mentor Prof. Janat Shah, we aim to serve as a platform for the student community to hone their knowledge in the domain of Operations and Supply Chain Management. The club continuously strives to boost the skills of students in the ever-changing field of Operations by facilitating industry-student interaction and sharing of ideas. SKEIN catalyzes the laminar flow of thoughts among students and keeps them informed of the issues that are faced by industries globally. Further, this club derives its strength from the unique association between the PGP and PGPX students, which increases the knowledge base and introduces a streak of diversity in its functioning. The club also aims to showcase IIM Udaipur as a B-school, which is focused on providing top management talents to the Operations and Supply Chain domain.
