The Master of Professional Studies in Supply Chain Management (MPS/SCM) program will begin in the Fall of this year. Including summers, the degree will take two full years to complete with just one short residency on Penn State's University Park campus at the end of the first year for one course.
The school explains that the curriculum's 26 credits in SCM includes four credits in project management and a four-credit professional paper. The paper will come at the end of the course of study and is designed to demonstrate the ability to apply advanced SCM knowledge to a supply chain-related problem or situation.
All courses are developed and presented by Penn State faculty. Applications for admission will be available online beginning on July 9 with a cutoff of August 1. Students for the MPS/SCM degree program must be admitted to both the program and Penn State's Graduate School. For details on admission requirements, visit www.smeal.psu.edu/mps.
