  • ​​Masters in Supply Chain Manageme​nt (SCM)

Supply Chain Management (SCM) focuses on effective planning and management of highly integrated product and information flows from the supplier’s suppliers to the customer’s customers. As organizations continuously seek to provide their products and services to customers faster, better and cheaper than the competition, managers have come to realize that they cannot do it alone. Businesses are working more closely with both their suppliers and customers to meet the needs of the ultimate consumer. Suppliers and vendors must become partners in the integrated supply chain. This represents a major change for many organizations. To successfully manage this change, organizations need highly qualified professionals equipped with the necessary expertise to progress to world class supply chain management status.
The M-SCM program will be offered in a cohort-based format and requires 4 semesters for completion.  Students who start in the Fall Term form a cohort that stays intact throughout the program. Students play a significant role in one another’s learning,  motivation, and success. Participants will work closely with members of their cohort in classroom, cases and projects, helping one another to maintain a sense of progress and achievement. As such, students are selected to complement one another in the learning process.

The main features of the M-SCM program are:

    • The first advanced supply chain management degree in the region
    • A supply chain program that delivers the integrative thinking on SCM necessary to operate in today’s competitive national and international environment.
    • A program that combines business strategy, engineering, and IT. 
    • A convenient four semester program that keeps participants on-the-job.
    • Ph.D. in ISE

Every PhD student has to take ten courses as required in the previous program and undertake a dissertation in his major that counts for twelve credit hours. The ten courses are composes of eight courses in the major area and two in the minor that will be selected by the student in consultation with his advisor. The PhD courses will be from the 500 and 600 levels. A PhD student may complete the ten courses by taking two directed research courses. Students from other areas or who complete their master in other institutions may be required to take more courses.
