Design global supply chains for tomorrow's innovative economy.
The 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.
MSCM graduates will be eligible for significant advanced standing into the Schulich MBA, after acquiring the requisite work experience to be eligible for the MBA.
Flexible Study Options
For those currently working in the industry, the MSCM is structured to allow part‐time enrollment. Students enrolled full‐time can finish the program in one year, while part‐time students can finish within as little as two years. Applicants with prior business degrees (BCOM, BBA) from North American institutions within the last 10 years, may be eligible for Advanced Standing, shortening their length of study to just 8 months on a full time basis or 20 months on a part-time basis. Contact our team to discuss your eligibility.
Fast Track Toward Professional Designations
Graduates of the MSCM program receive significant advanced standing to the Certified Supply Chain Management Professional (CSCMP) designation offered by Supply Chain Management Association of Ontario (SCMAO) as well as streamlined access to the Certified Logistics Professional designation offered by CITT.
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.
