Welcome to Michigan State’s Broad College of Business and the Department of Supply Chain Management. We are proud that our supply chain programs have been recognized for five years in a row as No. 1 in SCM education by US News & World Report and numerous other times by distinguished organizations such as Gartner and Supply Chain World.
I have been teaching supply chain/logistic/materials management at MSU for more than 30 years. During this time I have taught many exceptional supply chain students and worked with many leading Supply Chain companies.
The SCM Department offers three levels of degree programs: a bachelor’s in supply chain management, master’s in supply chain management, and two distinct doctoral programs in Logistics and in Operations & Sourcing Management. Our faculty also teach in the Full-Time MBA, Executive MBA, and any number of SCM-related certificate programs. We focus on teaching our students at every level how to improve supply chain operations, take the cost out of the supply chain, reduce supply chain failures, and mitigate supply chain risk.
Supply Chain is more than just a buzzword. It is a way of making business work better and as we say at Michigan State University – SPARTANS WILL MAKE BUSINESS HAPPEN.
