Have you been postponing plans to get an advanced degree in supply chain management because of your day job? That's no longer an excuse, according to the University of Indiana's Kelley School of Business. Through its Kelley Direct Program, the university now offers an online master's degree program in Global Supply Chain Management that allows professionals to work and go to school at the same time.

This 30-credit-hour program consists of one weeklong residency on the University of Indiana's campus in Bloomington, Ind. During the "in-residency," students get to know their classmates and professors while taking a 3.0-credit-hour Supply Chain Overview class.

The rest of the courses are taken online using a course management system and live meeting software. The online courses cover the fundamentals of sourcing; distribution; and supply chain planning, modeling, and control. Participants will also learn about financial accounting and analysis, marketing and operations management, and project planning and management. The program can be completed in 15 months.
