MS in Supply Chain Management Curriculum

The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management is designed to help students develop the necessary business fundamentals and provide a broad overview of supply chain management from a process perspective, with the electives offering opportunities for specialization.  Experience-Based Learning forms an integral part of the curriculum through completion of the Consulting Field Project course, Six Sigma practicum course, or Global Research Practicum.

The Katz MS in Supply Chain program requires students to complete 30 credits on a full-time basis over two semesters, with 16.5 credits from the core curriculum. Given the cross-functional nature of supply chain management, the electives come from a number of different areas and are organized into different tracks. Students who do not have a business background are advised to take the pre-program MBA workshops in statistics, accounting, economics and finance.
