Program of Study

The Master of Professional Studies in Supply Chain Management degree curriculum develops a student's mastery of knowledge, problem-solving competencies, and leadership skills that are critical to leading business transformation through integrated supply chain planning and execution.

We emphasize problem-based learning coupled with integrative, collaborative learning experiences to develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities for effective supply chain management.

Our curriculum is delivered online so that working professionals may complete a degree as a part-time student working off campus on his/her own time. Following is a typical plan of study for the degree program.
