Graduate students from Schulich’s Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) program work with organizations to solve real world, business problems related to supply chain management. Since 2019, a wide range of domestic and international companies have participated in this 4-month capstone course in which student teams provide a client organization with a deliverable of strategic importance to the improvement of their supply chain function. The projects expose students to real-world problems and organizations to potential talent.
