Not to be outdone by Big 10 rival Michigan State, the University of Michigan will soon offer a master of supply chain management program. The program, which is offered through the Ross School of Business, kicks off during the university's winter 2008 term, which begins in January.
Along with taking courses on subjects such as supply chain analytics, logistics, and strategic sourcing during the university's regular sessions, students will participate in a team-based summer project directed by a faculty supervisor at one of the school's corporate partners. The team will work on site to address a real-world business problem identified by the sponsor company. When team members return to campus in the fall, they will conduct a detailed review and evaluation of the project.
Applicants are required to have completed the equivalent of a four-year U.S. bachelor's degree program and have taken the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). Tuition and fees are $38,988 for Michigan residents; $43,988 for non-residents. Applications are due by Aug. 1.
