Master of Supply Chain Management Consulting Projects

Sponsor a team of five to six Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) students to help your company tackle supply chain and other operational issues. Utilizing the knowledge and skills acquired in the MSCM program along with their previous work experience, MSCM students can effectively analyze data and build decision models. Students will address challenges in sourcing, procurement, conversion, and logistics management processes needed to efficiently manage the flow of goods and services. At the end of the project, students will provide actionable recommendations to improve your business.
