The Master of Business Administration – Global Supply Chain Management degree program may be completed in two years or less and provides the high-level knowledge and range of skills necessary to meet the challenges of today’s complex global business. Rooted in the case method approach, this intensive program offers a uniquely collaborative, hands-on education.

The global supply chain management specialization provides managers the opportunity to understand and acquire the knowledge necessary to make decisions in emerging markets. The program is designed for managers who want to attain a rigorous business degree, understand lean initiatives and possess global relationship management attributes. The skill sets and knowledge acquired during the program are necessary components in today’s competitive and increasingly globalized workplace.

Admission Requirements

The applicant to the master of business administration program must have a bachelor’s degree; however, the degree need not be in business administration. Applicants who are graduates of non-business programs are also encouraged to apply. An applicant is assigned an advisor soon after acceptance into the M.B.A. program, and should meet with the advisor to prepare a program plan outlining the courses needed for the M.B.A. degree.

The admissions decision is based on a review of the application documentation including work experience, academic performance, references and written statement of purpose. Although taking the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is not a requirement, it is highly recommended for admission consideration. Individuals who take the GMAT and obtain a satisfactory score can compensate for other criteria in their application (such as academic performance or work experience). Preference for graduate scholarships will be given to applicants who take the GMAT.
