Michigan Ross Takes a New Route with MSCM Program

Revamp includes shorter program and a more integrative action-based learning curriculum

By ·
By ·

The University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business announced today the revamp of its Master in Supply Chain Management program. As MSCM approaches its tenth year, the program’s team saw an opportunity to expand its growth while continuing to produce high-quality talent and remaining competitive. The program will begin when the new cohort arrives in July 2017.

The program is designed to give students an edge in the job market and provide them deeper relationships with industry partners. Marrying leadership development with an industry-relevant curriculum, students and recruiters are getting the best from Michigan Ross.

“I’m excited about the direction we’re headed with the MSCM program. The redesign illustrates our commitment to excellence. At Michigan Ross, we create, foster and bring to life, bold ideas and continuously evolve to meet the needs of today’s business school student,” said Scott DeRue, Edward J. Frey Dean at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. “With these new offerings, we are preparing the next generation of leaders for the dynamic and complex supply chain of tomorrow.”

It will now be a 10-month program, beginning in July and concluding in April. And while the duration is shorter, students will spend more time on campus, and in turn get the full Michigan Ross experience. Currently the program is 12 months and begins in January. The new start date will help align students’ schedules with corporate recruiting schedules.

Other changes to MSCM include:

More big data and analytics - The new curriculum will include more key trends in the supply chain management industry. As big data and analytics have become increasingly popular areas of study among business schools, MSCM will focus on these topics as well as leadership development and general business education.

New course - Students will now have a more integrative program through a new action-based learning course, Supply Chain Consulting Studio. Previously, students worked summer internships with various companies. Now they will take a 6-credit course during the winter semester, where they will have projects sourced through industry partners. Students will experience a real-world corporate environment, where they will serve as consultants on a supply chain challenge.

Deeper industry engagement - Through the action-based learning curriculum, courses, and recruiters, the new format will provide an opportunity for students to have deeper and wider engagement with industry partners.

The MSCM program ranked No. 5 among supply chain management programs in U.S. News & World Report and No. 6 in IndustryWeek. It is one of the few schools in the U.S. that is STEM-certified, making international students eligible for more than 36.5 months of work authorization in the U.S. Another unique component of MSCM is the Corporate Advisory Council (CAC), a group of industry leaders who serve as advisors, mentors, and partners to Ross MSCM faculty and students. The CAC offers insight on the latest supply chain management trends and employment opportunities.

“The restructured Ross MSCM program, fueled by its progressive curriculum, high-impact action-based learning module, and close collaboration with the corporate sector, is destined to accelerate its production of elite supply chain innovators—precisely what the business community needs to address society’s emerging challenges,” said Bill Hall, Head of Sustainability at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and a CAC member.
