Degree Requirements

The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (MS SCM) is a minimum 36 semester credit hours 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 the program uniquely prepares students to be the next generation of 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.

To apply for this degree program, an undergraduate degree is required (all majors are considered). Students must maintain a 3.0 grade-point average (GPA) in both core courses and in aggregate courses to qualify for the MS degree.

Prerequisites

In addition, knowledge of calculus is required and students who have not completed an undergraduate calculus course may satisfy the prerequisite by completing OPRE 6303 Quantitative Foundations in Business with a grade of "B" or better.
