MSM-OR/SCM Curriculum

The 39-credit hour MSM-OR/SCM is a three-semester, full-time program beginning in the fall semester of each year. The curriculum comprises the following three components:

Practical Work Experience

Interaction with companies to solve a real-world business project.

Business Core (9 credits)

The Business Core introduces students to business fundamentals and includes a professional development course, a unique feature of the Weatherhead MSM-OR/SCM not found in most of our competitors’ programs.

Operations Research Core (12 credits)

The Operations Research Core provides the mathematical, statistical, and computational skills needed by analysts in research and development groups in manufacturing and services companies and consulting firms.

Supply Chain Courses (18 credits)

Supply chain courses build upon the business and quantitative foundation to provide advanced knowledge in operations and supply chain management.

Elective Options

If you waive a required course, then you must replace that course with one of the foregoing electives (or another course, as approved by the Director of Graduate Programs for the Department of Operations).
