Businesses today require a new kind of leader to manage their increasingly complex, diverse, and global supply chains.

The Michigan Ross Master of Supply Chain Management prepares you to be one of those leaders.

Our curriculum gives you thorough, functional supply chain management experience with the perspective of a general manager.

Supply chain management encompasses marketing, sourcing, manufacturing, logistics, inventory management, data analytics, and customer relations. The business acumen you’ll gain at Michigan Ross prepares you to approach problems holistically and become the kind of innovative leader companies need to manage the central nervous system of any global company: the supply chain.

You will be guided by world-class expert faculty from Ross Technology and Operations, the Center for Value Chain Innovation, and other relevant segments across Michigan Ross.

The Michigan Ross MSCM Program begins coursework in July and comprises the Summer (July-August), Fall (September-December) and Winter (January-April) Terms. A total of 30 credits is required to earn the MSCM degree. Students will fulfill at least three of the required 30 credits through electives.

You will gain a deep understanding of end-to-end, global supply chain management.

You'll also get the big picture, learning how supply chain affects, and is affected by, other functions of global business.

MSCM students take courses alongside candidates in the Michigan Ross Full-Time MBA Program, which is a unique opportunity to examine issues across business disciplines. Electives are offered in areas such as negotiations, international trade, retail, distribution channels, international finance, law, technology and data analytics. Many electives are seven-week intensive courses geared to recent research, late-breaking business issues, or specialized faculty expertise.

MSCM Boot Camp is a rigorous introduction to all business disciplines—economics, finance, strategy, accounting, marketing, communications, organizational behavior, and statistics. Boot Camp covers 78 hours of class time across 26 modules and is taught by Michigan Ross' world-class faculty in an intimate setting. It takes place throughout the first term and provides MSCM students with a fundamental grounding in business.

Action-Based Learning
Apply your knowledge in the real world.

You will graduate as a supply chain leader with hands-on experience thanks to the Michigan Ross action-based approach.

This perspective is woven throughout the MSCM Program, combining academic theory with real-world application.

During the Supply Chain Consulting Studio course, students work in groups to take on corporate projects at various companies. Each project reinforces an element of classroom instruction and is subject to classroom feedback, so students graduate from this program well-versed in both the theory and practice of comprehensive MSCM strategies.

Electives
Complement your supply chain studies with courses of special interest to you.

Electives allow you to complement your MSCM studies with areas of interest such as negotiations, international trade, retail, marketing, accounting, strategy, international finance, law, and data analytics.

You will take both core and elective courses alongside students in the Full-Time MBA Program. This integration introduces you to a wider section of the school’s world-class faculty and allows you to examine issues across business disciplines from different points of view.
