While many corporate C-level executives have long realized the importance of supply chain management to customer satisfaction as well as the bottom line, recent shortages across the U.S and the globe have made supply chain issues much more salient to consumers everywhere. These aspects include planning and forecasting, procurement, product assembly, storage, distribution, sales, and customer service. The Department of Statistics, Operations, and Data Science at Fox is excited to introduce a new MBA concentration in Supply Chain Management.

At the moment, this concentration will only be offered to our in-person (and not our online) program. Classes will largely be taught at the TUCC (Center City) campus. The concentration consists of four courses:

  • MSOM 5001 (Operations Management, core MBA course)
  • SCM 5101 (Supply Chain Analytics)
  • SCM 5102 (Supply Chain Logistics and Distribution)
  • SCM 5103 (Strategic Sourcing and Procurement)

The classes can be taken in any order, although it is recommended that students first take MSOM 5001. The degree concentration provides students with an essential knowledge of supply chain management, including analytics tools, distribution and warehousing strategies, and negotiation and leadership skills. We prepare students to lead major aspects of the supply system in both established and startup firms, as well as provide the breadth and depth to prepare students for a career in management consulting focused on this area.
