Student Experience

Our students appreciate a hands-on approach to higher learning. The curriculum, projects, and format are all designed to deepen the insights and perspectives already at work within the cohort. Learning alongside fellow professionals brings the added benefit of being able to quickly apply what you learn in class—because theory is imbued with reality.

In this program, you will engage around real-time business challenges; travel outside the country to be immersed in global business, and to learn directly from Northwest industry leaders. You’ll be part of a network that includes more than a few lifelong friendships.

The faculty, staff and students of Foster graduate programs frequently remark on how they feel like part of a diverse and collaborative community that’s looking out for them. That’s part of the culture of Foster, and we invite you to visit a class and check it out.

Hands-on learning

Two hallmarks of the MSCM experience are the Supply Chain Leader Series and MSCM Practicum. Students hear from influential members of the supply chain community throughout the year. . These interactive seminars impart valuable insights as students apply classroom concepts to real-world scenarios. During the spring quarter MSCM Practicum, student teams serve as consultants tasked with a company-sponsored supply chain project to conduct in-depth analyses and present actionable recommendations.

MSCM students work hard, but still find plenty of time for fun! From student-led team lunches and after-class happy hours to sporting events and hiking, students take advantage of all UW and the PNW have to offer. There are also opportunities to attend company treks and other events organized by the program, such as tours of a Boeing factory or Amazon Fulfillment Center.

Alumni Testimonies

Other colleges have more emphasis on data management or the supply chain, but MSCM is completely balanced in curriculum. It provides you the data side, the supply chain specifics, and the business side.

–Harsh Chopra, MSCM Class of 2019

Our cohort was a really fun group to be with. We worked hard, studied hard, and played hard. It was a great balance.

–Iris Yao, MSCM Class of 2018
