ISM approves Master of Science in Supply Chain Management
Mar '08
Supply management professionals from across the country have begun a Web-based master's degree program offered by the University of San Diego and approved by Institute for Supply Management (ISM).

Starting in February 2008, the ISM Approved Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (MS-SCM) is available to supply management professionals currently working in the field.

The program is offered online and requires 26 months for completion. Online interactions enable professionals to study from anywhere in the world and are supplemented with face-to-face sessions conducted three times a year at the University of San Diego campus.

“This is the first graduate-level education program to receive ISM approval,” says ISM CEO Paul Novak, C.P.M. “ISM's mission to lead supply management drives us to partner with enterprises and organizations that have similar goals of helping supply management professionals build lifelong personal and professional networks.”

USD's collaboration with ISM, announced last fall, has propelled the MS-SCM program into high gear. “The impact of ISM approval on our specialized master's degree was immediately evident,” says Simon Croom, Ph.D., executive director of USD's Supply Chain Management Institute.

“Many candidates who inquired, applied and enrolled in our February cohort expressed a high regard for the added credibility ISM approval brings to their learning experience.”

The 36-unit program is delivered in two phases. Students who complete Phase I of the program will achieve a Graduate Certificate in Supply Chain Management (GC-SCM). Students have the option of completing Phase I only or matriculating into Phase II to complete the MS-SCM.

The target enrollment date for the next cohort is May 16, 2008, with the program starting July 16, 2008. Enrollment requirements for the MS-SCM can be found on the University of San Diego School of Business Administration Web site.
