Supply Chain Management, M.S.

The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management Program addresses the creation and delivery of products from suppliers to the final customer.  Supply chain management is a rapidly growing business discipline being driven by advanced applications of information technology and the important role of supply chain management in an increasingly global economy.  With global operations becoming more complex, companies in manufacturing, retail and technology, along with the consulting firms that service them, find themselves in need of people with supply chain expertise.  The program is a structured program designed to accommodate both full-time and part-time students with required courses in business fundamentals, the supply chain core (e.g., demand and supply integration, logistics management, sourcing and procurement, contracting and negotiation) and supply chain analytics (supply chain analysis and design, supply chain optimization, and quality and productivity management).
