Naveen Jindal School of Management
Master of Science in Supply Chain Management
36 semester credit hours minimum
The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (MS SCM) is an STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) degree program that explores the key issues associated with the design and management of industrial supply chains, including methods for improving supply chain operations by lowering costs and improving quality. The depth of our supply chain program uniquely prepares students to be the next generation business leaders with skills and competencies necessary to perform across functions within an organization. Students gain business management knowledge and analytical decision-making skills (especially for complex systems) along with real-life experiences through industry projects.
The MS SCM program is designed for students with or without previous educational background in supply chain management. Students must maintain a 3.0 grade point average in both core courses and in aggregate courses to qualify for the MS degree. Students can also obtain a dual MS SCM/MBA degree by successfully completing a total of 63 semester credit hours (if all prerequisites are met).
Calculus is required as a graduate program prerequisite. Candidates that have not taken an equivalent course will need to complete OPRE 6303 with a grade of "B" or better to meet the calculus requirement.
