Ross School of
Business kicked off the inaugural class of the new Master of Supply Chain
Management (MSCM) Program.


Logistics and
effective supply chain management are more critical today than ever to
organizational survival, says Ross School Dean Robert Dolan. The Ross MSCM
Program will combine the expertise of the University's business and engineering
programs to produce graduates who understand the dependencies and
interconnectedness of all business functions.


Supply chain
management is often as much about moving information as it is about moving
goods, Dolan says. Companies understand that effective supply chain
management is a huge source of competitive advantage. The new MSCM program at
Ross gives students an opportunity to focus for one year on this critical
aspect of business and develop their own competitive edge in the market.


robust curriculum of the MSCM program includes a core set of supply chain
management courses, a business fundamentals boot camp (covering all business
disciplines), and the opportunity for students to take business and engineering
school electives. As Tauber students, MSCM candidates will participate in the
Tauber Institute's LeadershipAdvantage
SM series and summer team-based projects.


The launch of the
MSCM program brings five new supply chain courses to the Ross School's
offerings, which are available as electives to all Tauber students: Supply
Chain Analytics, Strategic Sourcing, Logistics, IT for Logistics & Supply
Chain Management, and Special Topics in Supply Chain Management.

Courses address
current and traditional issues, arming students with the business acumen and
global perspective to be critical thinkers with the ability to analyze,
develop, and enhance an entire supply chain.
