The online Master of Professional Studies in Supply Chain Management degree is a 30-credit graduate program that working professionals can complete in two years on a part-time basis.
The MPS/SCM Program spans the typical academic calendar across fall, spring, and summer semesters. Courses are entirely online with the exception of the required one-time, four-day residency on Penn State's University Park campus in August following the first year of courses.
Practical Supply Chain Skills
This interdisciplinary master's degree curriculum can give you an in-depth understanding of today's complex supply chain and how to manage it to improve efficiency and create a competitive advantage in your organization. You can gain the knowledge, problem-solving skills, and leadership techniques that are critical to advancing a business's goals through integrated supply chain planning and execution.
Each course in the degree program includes small-group projects to encourage peer interaction and to build a learning community among the online students. These projects simulate real-world business environments, where individuals frequently work in small teams to solve problems. Message boards are created for each project and team to facilitate interaction.
