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 deep, functional supply chain management experience with the perspective of a general manager.

The Michigan Ross MSCM Program begins coursework in January of each year and comprises the Winter Term (January-April), a paid consulting project from May-August, and Fall Term (September-December.) A total of 30 credits is required to earn the degree. Students will fulfill at least three of the required 30 credits through electives.

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, and IT. Many electives are seven-week intensive courses geared to recent research, late-breaking business issues, or specialized faculty expertise.

BUSINESS BOOTCAMP  

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 industry experience thanks to the Michigan Ross action-based approach.

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

All MSCM students are fellows in the Tauber Institute for Global Operations, a partnership between Michigan Ross and U-M’s College of Engineering.

Every Michigan Ross MSCM student participates in a paid consulting project through the Tauber Institute. You’ll be part of a student team, working with MBA and Engineering students, at a company on a high-profile project of great importance. In 2013, summer projects projected savings of $500 million -- an average of $14 million per team -- at sponsor companies. Student teams engage with senior management and recommend ways to implement their recommendations, taking this experience beyond the typical internship.

Student teams detail the results of their projects at the Tauber Spotlight! event and compete for scholarship awards. Last year more $44,000 in Spotlight! scholarships were awarded.

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 IT.

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.
