Program Description:

The Master of Science in Logistics and Supply Chain Management is designed for working professionals who cannot always take time from work to enhance their education. We offer a high-value one-year program with a convenient blended education approach. Students spend four residencies throughout the year on campus. The remaining course work is completed using our proprietary e-learning modules prepared by experts in their fields.

Now more than ever, success in most businesses depends on the successful management of Supply Chain Operations. Consider what happens when supply chains fail to deliver and stock outs occur in retail stores. Research shows that retailers can lose nearly half of intended purchases when customers encounter stock outs.

The program aims to enable students to craft technology-rich supply chain architectures, instill rapid innovation into supply chain design, efficiently manage the supply base, align partners through trust and common values, and create the right metrics for supply chain networks.
