Aaron Krueger

Aaron Krueger, a supply chain management major graduating this month, shares his experiences at Texas Tech and Rawls College.

With Spring 2022 commencement on the horizon, Rawls College students reflect on their experiences at Rawls College and look ahead to their next chapter as business professionals, influencers and leaders.

Aaron Krueger, originally from Belton, TX, will be graduating in May 2022 with a bachelor's degree in supply chain management and a concentration in transportation & operations management.

During his undergraduate career, Krueger was active with the Tech Supply Chain Association (TSCA), serving as the vice president of communication and ultimately vice president of the student organization. He also developed a passion for service and leadership through his involvement in Beta Gamma Sigma, a business honor society within Rawls College that honors students in the top 10% of their class. Krueger's strong leadership skills and academic excellence helped him land an internship with Boeing as a customer program management intern.

Outside of his academic commitments, Krueger volunteers at Redeemer Church.


Why did you choose to major in supply chain management?

I chose to major in supply chain management because of the impact of COVID-19. I originally planned to major in accounting, but after learning about the supply chain situation and seeing the demand in that area, I was sold. I have always wanted to be involved in an area of need, and I feel that the supply chain realm is that place for me right now.

What did you enjoy most about the supply chain management program?

I enjoyed the professors and the community of the students in the program the most. The major is challenging to get into, and everyone involved works hard to be the best version of themselves every day. Dr. Dan Taylor and Dr. Alan Pritchard set each student up for success while remaining role models for the program. 

What educational accomplishments are you most proud of?

The educational accomplishments that I am most proud of are earning a 4.0 at Temple Junior College for two years, being on the Texas Tech President's list each semester that I have been here and finishing college with a 3.9 GPA!

During your time at Rawls College, who has made the greatest impact on you, and why?

The people that have made the greatest impact on me are Dr. Taylor and Dr. Pritchard. They always wanted to help and made sure that everyone in the program understood all the content. Outside of the classroom, both professors always checked in to ask about future internships or job offers that we have received or wanted to pursue. They are both a big reason for my success at the Rawls College of Business. 

What are your plans after graduation?

My plan after graduation is to move to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and work as a Supply Chain Specialist in the transportation side of Boeing. After working there for a year, I will attend a master's program and work toward receiving a master's degree in data analytics or computer information systems.

Why do you love Rawls College?

I love Rawls College because it is a super nice building with useful resources to help any student willing to be successful. The community at Rawls is always friendly and willing to help anybody no matter what. They are the best college at Texas Tech!

Where do you see yourself in five years?

In 5 years, I see myself with a master's degree and higher up at the Boeing company in a leadership position.
