Residency Experience

The Master of Supply Chain Management requires one intensive, residential experience upon completion of your core courses. This residency makes up a significant portion of SCM 530: Supply Chain Analysis, with the remainder of the course delivered online in the week before and two weeks after your visit. The residency is held typically during the second or third week of July at Penn State's main campus in University Park, Pennsylvania.

In light of the current pandemic, the on-campus component may change to remote or virtual delivery as we approach summer. Updates will be posted below.

This residential experience offers several advantages, including:

  • the opportunity to receive instruction from tenure-line instructors through Penn State Smeal College of Business' executive education format. Smeal excels in executive education, especially in the area of supply chain management.
  • shared experiences that will help you build connections with fellow program students that will strengthen your team experiences through the second year of the program.
  • strengthen your relationship as a Penn Stater by spending time on our beautiful campus and becoming familiar with the university.
