University of Southern California •

  • • Rating 4.71 out of 5   17 reviews

Current Master's student: Marshall is a fantastic business program. So far, my academic experience has been nothing short of fantastic. I have never enjoyed school before, but almost every class I have learned new, applicable, and incredibly helpful techniques that I apply in my job every day. Most of the professors are very helpful, and passionate about their subjects. Marshall has clubs for almost every industry, so depending on your industry of interest, Marshall has clubs to prepare you for interviews and get you great exposure, and they're a great way to network as well. If your industry is not represented, you have the opportunity to create one. Marshall is still relatively underrepresented in minority categories like women and people of color, but from my understanding, they are working to improve those numbers. ... Read 17 reviews

Master's Student: I have loved my experience so far with the Syracuse online MBA program. Classes are offered on different days at different times and professors have proven to be very flexible with workload and scheduling. I love that each class has a live class each week along with online videos to help students understand concepts before going through the online class with the professor. The Syracuse app has also been extremely helpful because it allows students to download course materials directly to their devices, so coursework can be viewed offline, which has been great for traveling and commuting. Syracuse has also provided everyone with resources including tutoring, a weWork membership, networking events, residencies, and more. I was worried I would not meet my peers in an online program, but I have already made networking connections with only two semesters under my belt. I have nothing but positive things to say about the program, it truly has been great! ... Read 5 reviews

Saint Louis University •

  • • Rating 4.5 out of 5   4 reviews

Master's Student: I am in SLU's professional MBA program. The classes are good, but I have found that some professors give a tremendous amount of work that feels much more like undergrad vs. graduate school. I believe that the program is mostly comprised of recent graduates, so if you're a more experienced professional you should expect to be the oldest in the classroom. Neighboring schools like WashU have switched to offering all classes in-person and online and students have the choice; I feel SLU is behind in offering this benefit. Especially if they want to continue to attract busy professionals and executives who regularly travel for work, despite a pandemic. I like that SLU allows students to waive up to 4 classes based on undergraduate and professional experience. I also like the cost compared to WashU, but I do wish they were on a pass/fail grade system like WashU vs. a traditional A-F scale. I do like that the campus is dangerous. Last semester my car was broken into. ... Read 4 reviews

Master's Student: After doing some research in the Southern California area and speaking to former MBA students, I found the University of San Diego (USD) to be the most student centric. Their values of giving back to the community in addition to the passion that their professors have for the success of the students made it a top choice for me. Additionally, their focus around entrepreneurship is important given that San Diego is a big startup hub spot. In addition, I am looking forward to the partnerships that USD has formed with global companies. I will be able to take classes internationally as a result of these partnerships. These opportunities will allow me the opportunity to develop a global mindset. Having a global mindset will help round me out as a post-MBA student which should open the doors to a plethora of opportunities and ensure that I am another ethical leader entering the business world. ...

The best part is being able to work full-time and take courses online that are convenient to my schedule, as well as learning pertinent information that is relevant for my job (I work for state government as an auditor). A drawback is that because the courses are all online, I don't get to interact with the professor and classmates as much, which I really value being able to have in-person/virtual discussions to learn more. Overall, it's a very valuable academic experience, and I hope to carry forward what I'm learning in my professional career, and be a leader and resource for public sector work. ... Read 7 reviews

The waiver does not include registration fees or other fees.

Financial support is assured for the first four years of the program. Further support is provided subject to the available of financial resources and the candidate making satisfactory, significant progress in the doctoral program.

Fellowship aid is available from the university, the department and external sources.

Program Overview

No. The program is strictly a full-time program and we are not able to accommodate part-time students. Aside from coursework, research and independent study require students to be on campus on a full-time basis.

No. A degree from a U.S. school should exempt you from the TOEFL requirements.

These programs are designed for students to complete in four years.

The university deadline for applications is March 1. To be eligible for the full range of university fellowships and funding, it is important to have applications by early December. However, most applications are reviewed between January and April for an August admission.

One of the requirements most often questioned by applicants is that of the need for a GMAT/GRE as part of the admissions process. Let’s begin by being clear on one point – we cannot admit nor can we offer a place in our doctoral program to any student who fails to provide the doctoral committee with such documentation. If you do not offer it, then your application will be considered incomplete and you will not be considered.

There are several reasons for this requirement. First, it is a good independent indicator of the candidate’s capabilities in terms of analytical, quantitative and verbal areas – areas considered critical to success. Second, it allows us to compare candidates. Third, we use the results of this test as a screen – it helps us identify candidates who do not have the necessary skills. Finally, we are required to have an admissions process that is both visible and fair. The requirement for a GMAT/GRE score is critical to meeting this demand.

Consequently, we have taken a position that clearly states that all candidates must submit a GMAT/GRE score from a qualified test center in order for their application to be considered. We hope that you understand the reasons for this position.

No. We do not have minimum cut-off scores on the GMAT or GRE. However, admission to the doctoral program is extremely competitive, and our current students have averaged in the 90th percentile on the verbal and 80th percentile on the quantitative portions of the GMAT and/or GRE. An applicant with any score below the 70th percentile or a cumulative score below the 75th percentile is unlikely to be admitted. However, regardless of test scores, each applicant is fully reviewed by the admissions committee.

International students are required to take the TOEFL. The Broad Graduate School of Management specifies a minimum total score of 600 for the paper version or 250 total for the computer version. Scores at or above this minimum will not guarantee admission.

Logistics: 1331.

Operations and Sourcing Management: 1350.

Use the following school codes for test givers to route your test scores online to Michigan State University:

GMAT Scores: QH0-5P-02. GRE and TOEFL: 1465.

Financial Aid

Most of our students are supported by teaching assistantships or research assistantships. Entering students are generally awarded a teaching assistantship, provided they meet basic language qualifications. There is no separate application for teaching assistantships. Research assistantships are generally awarded to advanced graduate students.

June 5, 2024

8:30 AM – 4:30 PM ET

2 consecutive days

Registration Deadline

May 28, 2024

Learn how to use supply chain analytics to reduce costs, manage inventory as consumer needs evolve, and make strategic decisions.

Overview of supply chain management.

As countless disruptions impact today’s global supply chains, the demand for highly skilled, in-house supply chain professionals is higher than ever. Yet less than half of managers have the analytical skills and strategic mindset needed to design future-proof supply chains that support business growth.

To keep pace with rapid automation and digitization, organizations rely on their supply chain professionals to have both functional skills and end-to-end knowledge of digital supply chain operations.

This interactive program will teach you the supply chain management skills needed to be an effective supply chain manager or partner and evaluate, improve, and design successful supply chains that support your organization’s strategy. Through interactive simulations, relevant case studies, and discussions with industry experts, you will learn how to:

  • Manage inventory
  • Forecast demand
  • Assess risks
  • Solve problems under uncertainty

Participants will depart equipped to apply supply chain analytics to reduce costs, manage inventory as consumer needs evolve, and make strategic decisions that respond to the need for digital supply chains to be resilient, sustainable, and agile.

Who Should Register

This program is appropriate for managers with 5+ years of experience in supply chain manufacturing, operations, or data analytics. It is ideal for business leaders, including industry consultants, looking to improve revenue streams, lower costs, and increase operational efficiency and digitization.

In addition to supply chain managers, this program would benefit aspiring managers or entrepreneurs focusing on manufacturing, sustainability, product development, purchasing, finance, or operations.

Course Benefits

This supply chain management program offers insights into current best practices, digitization, industry trends, and future projections by engaging with supply chain industry leaders through expert discussions.

After completing the program, you will feel confident in your ability to:

  • Evaluate levels of efficiency and performance at all stages of a supply chain
  • Quantify supply chain risk (such as supply shortages, supplier delay, procurement, supplier fulfillment, consumer behavior)
  • Build operational decision-making skills under uncertainty (in demand projection, inventory management, infrastructure development, capacity allocation)
  • Discover strategies for managing variability within a digital supply chain network while implementing sustainable practices

You will also earn a Certificate of Participation from the Harvard University Division of Continuing Education.

Over the course of two days, you will use interactive simulations, relevant case studies, and discussions with industry experts to hone your skills in supply chain analytics.

You will also learn about:

  • The digital supply chain management landscape across various industries
  • Efficiency and performance measurement through Metrics, Capacity, Time and WIP
  • Decision making under uncertainty using Little’s Law, Marginal Analysis, EOQ
  • Evaluating revenue management using Decision Trees, Capacity Control, Overbooking
  • Forecasting methodologies based on consumer demand, inventory supply, and risk management
  • The role of supply chain design and digitization in business strategy
  • Sustainable supply chain design
  • Key managerial roles in an efficient supply chain management system

Replacing the “Take-Make-Waste” Model with Sustainable Supply Chains The switch to a circular economy could protect the environment while helping companies generate more value.

Sustainable Supply Chains Helped Companies Endure the Pandemic A survey of more than 350 firms finds that resilience is an important byproduct of sustainability.

Making Supply Chains Deliver More Than Just Faster, Cheaper Products Hau Lee envisions a system that benefits buyers, consumers, workers, and the environment.

Sink or swim: Decarbonizing the supply chain transportation network

Spartans drive the global supply chain

Michigan state university’s top-ranked supply chain program takes on real-world challenges to make a difference worldwide.

Reading time: 6 minutes

Ever walked around the grocery store and wondered how everything got there? Or, more likely, why an item wasn’t there?

From toilet paper to PlayStation, the height of the COVID-19 pandemic shined a spotlight on the impact of disruptions in receiving consumer goods and services. It’s something faculty and researchers at Michigan State University’s supply chain management program have known and studied for more than half a century.

“Supply chain isn’t really a chain; it isn’t linear. It is a web of connected processes and decisions,” says Jason Miller, interim chair of the Department of Supply Chain Management — home to the leading undergraduate and graduate programs in the nation — in the MSU Broad College of Business .

“Supply chain managers need to be creative systems thinkers to understand how one decision impacts the rest of the web.”

For an overview of what supply chain is and how it works, who better to explain it than Spartan faculty from the country’s top program.

MSU’s end-to-end approach

In the 1960s, MSU broke the mold of supply chain education by approaching the industry holistically. While other universities focused on one aspect at a time, MSU faculty recognized that procurement, operations and logistics — supply chain’s three pillars — are not independent processes.

“Our approach was different than what was being done at any other university,” says Miller.

“Some people think supply chain is just logistics or just transportation; that is not true. Supply chain management is an end-to-end process that involves collaboration across different functions and multiple stakeholders, including suppliers and customers as well as nontraditional players like government bodies,” says Li Cheng, assistant professor of supply chain management.

“It’s essentially an ecosystem.”

MSU’s holistic approach extends to the classroom by looking at supply chain management from end to end and integrating topics from manufacturing operations, purchasing, transportation and physical distribution into a unified program. Students learn how to improve supply chain operations, reduce costs within the supply chain, reduce failures and mitigate risks as well as promote sustainability and ethics.

To provide an even broader perspective, classes focus on different types of industries, including hospitality, where the goods are actually a service being delivered.

“We give students a rigorous curriculum that allows them to understand supply chain management in different ways — the functional areas and the skills they need to become effective decision-makers,” adds Cheng.

Today, MSU’s supply chain management curriculum is still at the cutting edge, consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report with a No. 1 ranking for undergraduate and graduate programs.

“The classes are practical, not just theory, so we learn how to actively think and solve problems. Plus, the professors have real-world experience to share,” says Peter Estefan, a fourth-year student in supply chain management and president of the Supply Chain Management Association, one of the largest student organizations at MSU.

Faculty work to stay on top of business trends and the challenges presented by rapid advances in technology. The curriculum now includes data analytics and big data. Understanding these tools allows graduates of the program to help their employers forecast the future with what they know about the past.

The college also offers a class on business “soft skills,” which are as important to supply chain managers as processes and data. Supply chain managers maintain strong relationships with partners and work to understand problems from their perspective while using their insights to make decisions.

“Supply chain management is 50% science and 50% art,” says Miller.

Setting Spartans apart

Another hallmark of MSU’s supply chain management department is the strong connection to business, in Michigan and around the world.

“Even my colleagues who did not go to MSU recognize there is something different about these students.

For more than 40 years, industry leaders on the Supply Chain Management Council have supported the teaching, research and business involvement of MSU faculty and students. While the council format is used by multiple universities, MSU members are partners in top-ranked supply chain research, as well as educational and recruitment opportunities with students.

“The college does a really good job of keeping industry connected with the program,” says Adam Robbins, principal director of strategy supply chain and operations practice at Accenture and member of the MSU Supply Chain Management Council. “We have regular opportunities to connect with students and faculty.”

Council members frequently give presentations to the student-led Supply Chain Management Association and host student tours at their facilities. Members also participate in capstone project presentations, allowing students to gain experience and receive feedback from company leaders and potential future employers.

“Even my colleagues who did not go to MSU recognize there is something different about these students. Spartan students and graduates tend to be well advanced in the supply chain discipline given their academic background, extracurricular activities and internship experiences,” adds Robbins. “They have a lot of hustle and are ready to go. Their learning curve is less steep.”

Peter Estefan

More than 86% of MSU supply chain management bachelor’s degree recipients are employed full time after graduation, with another 7% pursuing advanced degrees.

“There are a lot of great schools, but you can’t make these connections anywhere else,” says Estefan. “The investment and involvement from the faculty and alumni really stands out. At MSU, you will learn and have fun, and the connections you make will set you apart.”

Industry-shaping research

MSU supply chain management faculty are exceptional leaders in research impact and productivity. Since 2010, the college has been ranked No. 1 in the SCM Journal List for research output in empirically focused journals. In that work, researchers focus on real-world problems, such as corporate social responsibility and the role of the consumer, that have direct relevance to businesses and the community at large.

“We are seeing consumers become more concerned about where the product is coming from, a company’s labor practices and their environmental impact,” says Simone Peinkofer, associate professor of supply chain management.

“There are rising requirements for brands to consider sustainability and ethics in their operations,” adds Cheng, whose research focuses on the decision-making processes in supply chain management, recently with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion.

Cheng, Peinkofer and other MSU supply chain management researchers share their findings with industry partners to gather real-time reactions. This creates a feedback loop for researchers to not only have a better understanding of how their research is interpreted by industry partners but also to find new areas to explore.

The image on the left is an overhead view of a freeway. The image on the right is machinery in a factory.

“Research shows retailers who are transparent in the practices actually signal to consumers a high product quality,” says Peinkofer. “Looking at changes in customer behavior generates insights companies can use to develop more effective and efficient supply chain strategies.”
