curriculum Highlights

Leadership Development
Become a business leader.

Developing leadership skills is critical to success. As an MSCM student, you will undertake seven interactive workshops rooted in practice-oriented research by Michigan Ross faculty and the Michigan Model of Leadership. These in-depth sessions will guide you in developing your strengths, values, and goals in the personal, professional, and interpersonal arenas.

Workshop topics include:

  • How to optimize the four core leadership styles within individuals, teams, and organizations
  • Empathetic and collaborative leadership for diverse, cross-cultural teams
  • Results-oriented strategies for success
  • How to craft a personal, purpose-aligned vision for the future based on your experiences and values

MSCM students also have the opportunity to take part in several action-based leadership development programs offered by the Sanger Leadership Center. Programs include the Leadership Crisis Challenge, an intensive simulation to practice your skills under pressure; Story Lab, an initiative designed to increase your communication and executive presence skills, and many more programs available throughout the year.

Knowledge Building
In this ten-month program, you will gain a deep understanding of global supply chain management.

Kicking off the holistic curriculum, the Ross MSCM offers a Business Boot Camp.

This is a rigorous introduction to all business disciplines - economics, finance, strategy, accounting, marketing, communications, organizational behavior, and statistics. The Boot Camp covers 78 hours of class time across 26 modules and is taught by Ross’ world-class faculty in an intimate setting. This unique opportunity provides you with a fundamental grounding in business.

Through our core courses, you will gain a deep understanding of supply chain management, graduating with the technical expertise needed to success in this exciting field. 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.

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 you 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.
