MBA student chosen for Supply Corps fellowship

Lt. Cmdr. Owen Morrissey
School of Business MBA student Owen Morrissey will represent the United States Navy and KU by participating in the Training With Industry program next year.

Lt. Cmdr. Morrissey has been selected for a fellowship with FedEx in Memphis, Tennessee, where he will spend one year learning about executive level decision-making and expand his professional supply and logistics education.

Morrissey was one of four Supply Corps lieutenants and lieutenant commanders from around the country to be selected for the program, including representatives from Duke University, University of Pennsylvania and NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Puget Sound. After he completes his fellowship, he will serve a three-year follow-on tour in one of the Supply Corps key supply chain management assignments to apply the skills and ideas gained from his experience.
