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.

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

Program Highlights

Interactive Curriculum

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.
