The 30-credit-hour program will allow admission only for a winter-term start. The admission deadline for the inaugural class is August 1. The Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) program will involve team-based summer project experience. Students will work on real-world assignments with assistance from members of Michigan's Operations and Management Sciences Department.
Ravi Anupindi, associate professor of operations management at the Ross School, claims that, “No other top-ranked business school currently offers a supply chain concentration, let alone a comprehensive one-year MSCM degree.”
The curriculum includes courses in manufacturing and supply operations, supply chain management, supply chain analytics, logistics, strategic sourcing, project management, information technology for logistics and supply chain management, as well as elective material.
