Media Links Up with Supply Chain Management

Share

Supply chain management is a hot topic in the media lately. The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg Businessweek have both written major articles on the topic in recent weeks.

Anyone who is familiar with U-M Ross knows that the school is one of the best places in the nation to study supply chain management. The program is truly unique, with all the hallmarks of a Ross education, combined with “only at Ross” experiences such as the following that set the program apart:

  • The Ross MSCM Program started in 2009 as one of our first, specialized degree programs and is ranked #2 in the nation.

  • Students accepted into the Ross program will benefit from a holistic, unbiased, business- disciplined approach to supply chain management education with an action-based component that empowers them to hit the ground running on the job.

  • Unlike other schools who offer courses or tracks in supply chain, ours is a full-fledged graduate degree program and one of the only such programs offered at a top ten business school.

  • The Ross MSCM Program is a calendar-year program that starts in January and graduates in December. 

  • Each MSCM student is also a Tauber Institute for Global Operations student and each student has a mentor.

  • Our program also includes an innovative Business Boot Camp, which is integrated into the winter semester and delivers business fundamentals from the same award-winning faculty who teach the MBAs.

  • As part of Ross' action-based learning approach, MSCM students spend the summer working on hands-on projects in real companies through the Tauber Institute. They then present their projects in the Spotlight competition in the fall.  

While the program is somewhat new, it is growing, both in popularity and importance, as more and more employers are looking to hire MSCM graduates. Learn more about the Ross MSCM degree at http://www.bus.umich.edu/Admissions/MSCM/Whyross.htm.
