A distinctive feature of the Michigan Ross MSCM experience is our commitment to action-based learning. You’ll graduate with real-world supply chain experience already on your resume. 

In the MSCM program, you’ll put your classroom learning into action during the Supply Chain Consulting Studio when you complete a corporate project with a small group of students and a professor. The course, which includes on-site data collection and presentations, complements your studies so that you 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
  • Network Design and Optimization
  • Sustainability
  • Product Development
  • New Forecasting Models
  • Risk Assessment

No other business school offers the multitude and variety of action-based learning than Michigan Ross.
