Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (MSSCM)
In the 18-month Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (MSSCM) program at Olin, students develop the skills and judgment required to manage the production and delivery of a firm’s products and services, which is a critical aspect of business in today’s challenging economic environment.
The MSSCM degree requires the completion of 36 credits, including 34.5 required credits and 1.5 elective credits. This program is STEM-designated for its focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The curriculum provides students with a current and innovative approach to data. Students typically complete the program in three semesters. An accelerated, two-semester format is also available.
Students apply the skills they learn in the classroom to real-world projects for corporate partners of Olin’s Boeing Center for Supply Chain Innovation. These partners represent a wide range of organizations and industries, and projects tackle technology, information, and operations challenges.
All Specialized Master’s Programs students kick off their degrees with a multipronged orientation program designed to prepare them for academic, personal and professional success.
Students will participate in Passport, Career Stamp, and SMP Start, and they will complete foundational courses during the summer prior to beginning their fall semester at Olin.
Students new to the United States and non-native English speakers begin with Passport, during which they will acclimate to the Olin Business School culture and strengthen their English and business communication skills. The entire cohort of students will participate in Career Stamp, which serves as a catalyst for students to help them get started in their career search and preparation processes, and SMP Start, which orients everyone to the ins and outs of Washington University. Finally, students complete SMP Graduate Orientation (GO) Week, which includes workshops and events to help students with their final preparations before the start of their first semester. These programs are packed with opportunities for students to bond with their program cohort and to connect with their peers in all of the Specialized Master’s Programs.
Simultaneously, students will complete online, asynchronous foundation courses to bolster their background and maximize their academic preparation before the start of their degree program.
