M.S. in Supply Chain Management

Connecting the World

Dr. Roby Thomas, program director, talks about what makes Elmhurst’s supply chain management program unique.

When you understand a business from one end to the other, you make yourself indispensable—in a city that is one of the world’s greatest transportation and logistics hubs.

As a professional navigating a complex and global business environment, you need a degree that adds value. With Elmhurst’s MSCM you’ll offer organizations the much sought-after know-how in designing, planning and operating well-run supply chains.

You’ll be versed in the roles each functional area of a business plays in the supply chain and the cross-functional collaborative strategies needed in operating supply chains. But it will be the depth of your Elmhurst-acquired analytical skills that will give you your true leadership muscles.

A Network for the Rest of Your Professional Life

Your classmates in your cohort are business professionals who have been in the workplace for at least three years. You’ll gain a network of teachers, peers and more than 300 alumni who will support you throughout your career and connect you with employers nationally.
