Why a MSLSCM Degree?

Why a degree in Logistics and Supply Chain Management?

Now more than ever, success in most businesses depends on the successful management of Supply Chain Operations. Consider what happens when supply chains fail to deliver and stock outs occur in retail stores. Research shows that retailers can lose nearly half of intended purchases when customers encounter stock outs.

Organizations such as Wal-Mart, Sony, Dell, SUN Microsystems, and DaimlerChrysler depend on their supply chain systems to deliver the right products at the right time. These companies succeed with:

  • Crafting customized supply chain architectures: Designing supply chains for delivery cost savings, speed, and managing business transitions
  • Leveraging innovation: Leaders in supply chain management apply new technology and new process thinking to great advantage
  • Managing the supply base: Flexible sourcing, supplier integration, and part management
  • Aligning supply chain partners: Building efficiencies through trust, common values, and goals
  • Implementing optimal measurement and controls: Creating the right metrics for operations based on appropriate incentives and penalties

A comprehensive program of study is required for students to succeed in these areas. Professionals in logistics and supply chain management will find this program to be focused, balanced, and practical. Our orientation of balancing theory development with field expertise will allow participants to develop a unique skill set that is unmatched.

WSU offers one year Masters Degrees in Information Systems and in Logistics and Supply Chain Management to help advance your career. The Master of Science in Logistics and Supply Chain Management program is designed to provide students with the graduate education that will enhance their leadership careers in the field of logistics and supply chain management.

The program aims to enable students to craft technology-rich supply chain architectures, instill rapid innovation into supply chain design, efficiently manage the supply base, align partners through trust and common values, and create the right metrics for supply chain networks.

The MS program is a one-year, 33-credit hour, lockstep, cohort-based program. The program blends intensive physical in-class residencies with online e-learning segments. The in-class residencies are scheduled between the e-learning segments and include case studies, leadership lectures, breakout sessions, and simulation assignments. E-learning segments add learning activities such as interactive cases, pedagogical discussions, and proprietary teaching material built by global subject matter experts.

Focused on ROI

To lead a business enterprise, you need to control your business operations and directly influence supply chain solutions.

The entire program is built on a foundation of problem-solving, student-centric experiences, and corporate involvement. The Master of Science in Logistics and Supply Chain Management is a 33 semester-credit hour program. Of these, six hours are dedicated to an extensive Capstone project designed for the program participant by his/her sponsoring organization. The remaining 27 credit hours include course work in the following domains:

  • Global Logistics
  • Operations and Control
  • Quality Management
  • Project management
  • Strategic Sourcing
  • Information Technology and SCM
  • Supply Design and Integration

The program concludes with the capstone project in which students apply and integrate program content to complete an intensive project assigned to them by their organization. At the end of the project, the students present their project to faculty advisors, sponsoring organizations, and other professionals.
