Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) Design global supply chains for tomorrow’s innovative economy. The Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) program prepares you for leadership roles in building, managing and improving supply chains. The 39-credit full-time or part-time program develops the analytical and managerial skills needed to find creative supply chain solutions to business opportunities and problems in private, nonprofit, or governmental sectors. True to the cross-functional nature of modern Supply Chain Management (SCM), the program adds value to persons with previous undergraduate degrees in areas such as engineering, economics, healthcare, science, social science, and business. FLEXIBLE STUDY OPTIONS For those currently working in industry, the MSCM is structured to allow part-time enrolment. Students enrolled full-time can finish the program in one year, while part-time students can finish within as little as two years. Certain qualified candidates from North American business schools may be eligible for Advanced Standing, thereby reducing their time in the program. INNOVATIVE STRUCTURE The MSCM curriculum combines foundational business knowledge with specific functional courses and their practical application. The program is highly experiential, culminating in a collaborative Supply Chain Consulting Project in which groups explore opportunities for business development and problem-solving for a client organization.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES IN SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT The program is designed for students who aspire to rapidly advance in their careers into senior management positions responsible for the end-to-end design and coordination of an organization’s supply chain. Throughout your studies, benefit from access to the Centre for Career Design (CCD). As Schulich’s in-house team of certified Career Coaches and Industry Advisors, the CCD offers a wealth of innovative resources, individualized mentoring and coaching to help advance your career.
