The Master of Professional Studies in Supply Chain Management requires one intensive, residential experience, which includes elements of SCM 530: Supply Chain Analysis and SCM 594: Professional Paper. Both courses include online and in-residence delivery and are part of the four-day residential experience held in University Park, Pennsylvania.
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.
- preparation for professional report research and writing. Topics addressed include writing a research purpose statement, research proposal and report writing guidelines, a schedule of deliverables across the three-semester SCM 594 progression, and a faculty research topic review process that matches students with faculty.
