Supply chain management is the management of business activities from product development, sourcing, production and logistics to managing the resources and related capabilities the organization needs in the accomplishment of its strategic objectives.
The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (MS SCM) degree program introduces students to current supply chain operating practices, analysis methods, technology, applications and strategy developments. It also provides students with advanced knowledge on how to identify, resolve and manage complex operational problems.
The MS SCM uniquely prepares students to be next-generation business leaders with skills and competencies necessary to perform across functions within an organization. The program has received a seal of approval from the Institute for Supply Management (ISM), the largest supply management association in the world.
