Curriculum & Course Sequence

The master of science in supply chain management is a rigorous, part-time program that can be completed over a 21-month period.

Courses are offered through EU-Flex. Students may attend online, on-campus, or any combination of the two.

Built on a cohort (team-focused) model, the program embraces the University’s belief that students play a significant role in supporting one another’s learning, motivation and success. Students who start in the fall term form a cohort that stays intact throughout the program. You will work closely with members of your cohort in classroom and study projects, and you’ll help one another maintain a sense of progress and achievement.
