About the Program
The Michigan Ross Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) prepares students for leadership roles with a thorough curriculum that offers functional supply chain management experience with the perspective of a general manager. This is a growing program for Michigan Ross, with 44 students in the Class of 2018. The average age of a student is 28 years and 34% of the class are female. Supply chain management isn’t a tactical function — it is a business function. It demands dynamic problem-solving in marketing, sourcing, manufacturing, logistics, inventory management, IT, and customer relations. The business acumen gained at Michigan Ross prepares graduates to approach challenges holistically and become the kind of innovative leader companies need to manage the central nervous system of any global company — the supply chain. The MSCM Program uses its close ties with industry professionals and corporations to create the best, most up-to-date educational program for today’s supply chain demands. Graduates aren’t just prepared for today’s jobs––they land them, thanks to strong industry connections and the Ross career development education team. More than 90 percent of MSCM graduates are employed within 3 months of graduation.
Program Format and Schedule
The University of Michigan’s Ross Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) Program spans ten months and begins coursework in July. It 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. Action-based learning is a distinctive feature of the Michigan Ross MSCM. During the Winter Term, students utilize their classroom learning in the real-world during the Supply Chain Consulting Studio, when they complete a corporate project with a small team of students. The course, which includes on-site data collection and presentations in a corporate environment, complements their studies so that students gain both a theoretical and practical understanding of the most up-to-date strategies in a diverse array of topics, such as data analytics, strategy, sustainability, and risk assessment.
