If you're looking to make yourself more marketable in these tough economic times, getting a master of science degree in supply chain management might be the way to go. Michigan State University now offers a supply chain management degree program that allows professionals to participate without having to leave their current job. The MSU program combines in-residency classes with e-learning segments taught by leading researchers, teachers, and practitioners in the field.
Students can choose to complete the course of study in 19 months or an extended 31 months. They have three tracks to choose from: logistics, operations management, and procurement. The program also includes a field study/research project.
Applications for the program are due April 1, 2009. For more information, visit www.bus.msu.edu/supplychain/msscm.
