MS in Supply Chain Management (MSSCM) Curriculum
The STEM-designated MSSCM program is comprised of 36 credits of graduate level coursework and provides a broad cross-functional managerial perspective.
The MSSCM program is typically pursued in a three-semester format. Depending upon your previous coursework, areas of interest, and personal preference, you may have the option of completing the program in two semesters.
Working professionals in the St. Louis area can pursue the program on a part-time basis. The MSSCM track offers the convenience of allowing students to earn their degree taking courses part-time, in the evening. Part-time students can begin the MSSCM in the fall or spring semester.
A minimum 3.0 grade point average must be maintained for graduation eligibility.
