Program overview

The Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) is a research-based graduate program providing students with an interdisciplinary perspective by exposing them to a number of business and engineering areas, including marketing, industrial engineering, statistics, finance, change and stakeholder management, and information systems. The tools, techniques and approaches employed challenge students to be critical thinkers. Students will learn how to identify problems using scientific approaches and propose solutions with academic and business merit.

Graduates from our program will be particularly well-positioned for careers in consulting, manufacturing, retail, logistics, distribution and software as companies in those fields are increasingly leveraging supply chain expertise to gain a competitive advantage. The program will also provide a springboard for those students wishing to pursue a PhD.
