Schulich Welcomes Inaugural Master of Supply Chain Management Class
On Saturday May 4th, Schulich celebrated the start of the Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) designation by hosting the official program orientation for its inaugural graduate class. Students from the full-time and part-time stream, as well as faculty and industry partners, were brought together to participate in a day of experiential workshops, presentations and networking.
The day opened with a welcome address from MSCM Program Director, David Johnston, and included presentations on behalf of Schulich’s Career Development Centre, Alumni Relations, as well as remarks from the leadership of Schulich’s Graduate Business Council and Schulich’s Supply Chain & Operations Management Club. MSCM faculty members and industry partners were also present to network with the incoming students.
“This is a much-needed initiative in this booming sector of the economy,” said Program Director David Johnston. “There are not a lot of supply chain designation professionals with the right perspective, tools and credentials. Our objective is to educate managers that can lead to change in supply chains that makes them more sustainable, competitive and resilient in a sometimes turbulent global environment.
The day culminated with an experiential leadership workshop led by MSCM instructor, Mark Federman, on developing the incoming student’s abilities to lead major organizational changes.
Applications for May 2020 MSCM entry will open later this June. For more information, please visit our program page.
