March 30, 2005—Indiana University's Kelley School of Business in Bloomington, Indiana, has been tapped to receive $150,000 from Proctor & Gamble's charitable arm to develop and offer coursework in RFID. The Kelley MBA program already has a strong focus on supply chain education, including its Supply Chain Academy program. The school's interim dean was quoted as saying, "With changes in RFID technologies, businesses are abuzz with its potential, and it is vital that our graduates leave our program ready to play a leading role at corporations that have always looked to Kelley for such understanding."
The effort by P&G to spawn more business graduates with RFID expertise is implicit recognition of the widely-reported trend that demand for RFID skills and labor will outstrip supply in coming years. In early March, the Computing Technology Industry Association released the results of a survey indicating that 80% of those interviewed considered the RFID talent available in the marketplace insufficient to meet the rising tide of RFID deployments.
