Design global supply chains for tomorrow's innovative economy.
The new Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) program will prepare students for leadership roles in building, managing and changing supply chains. The 39‐credit full-time or part-time program will develop the analytical and managerial skills needed to find creative supply chain solutions to business opportunities and problems in private, nonprofit, or governmental sectors.
True to the cross-functional nature of modern Supply Chain Management (SCM), the program will add value to persons with previous undergraduate degrees in areas such as engineering, economics, healthcare, science, social science, and business.
Flexible Study Options
For those currently working in industry, the MSCM is structured to allow part‐time enrolment. Students enrolled full‐time can finish the program in one year, while part‐time students can finish within as little as two years. Certain qualified candidates may be eligible for Advanced Standing in the program.
The MSCM curriculum combines foundational business knowledge with specific functional courses and their practical application. The program is highly experiential, culminating in a collaborative Supply Chain Consulting Project in which groups will explore opportunities for business development and problem-solving for a local client organization.
