Master of Science in Supply Chain Management

The importance of supply chain management continues to grow as supply chains become more global, more complex, more competitive, and, at the same time, more responsive. The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management provides students with broad supply chain knowledge and technical skills in sourcing, logistics, planning, inventory, pricing, and consulting. The program has a strong interdisciplinary flavor, letting students select from a wide range of electives.  Experience-Based Learning forms an integral part of the curriculum through a Consulting Field Project course, internship or Global Research Practicum.  The Pitt Business Center for Supply Chain Management supports the program through educational programs and partnerships with industry.

The 30-credit program is designed to be completed in nine months (August - April).  The program also has a part-time option, however, part-time study will extend the length of time needed to complete the degree. The curriculum is comprised of core and elective courses currently offered to Katz MBA students. Other than an undergraduate degree, no prerequisites are required. Please note that these programs do not fall under the STEM program. 

The MS in Supply Chain Management Emphasizes:

  • Strategies for improving product delivery and lowering overall supply chain costs
  • Advanced techniques in statistical analysis for the purpose of improving processes
  • The study of the forward and reverse flow of supply chain operations
