Master's in Supply Chain Management
Today’s businesses are looking to drive profitability by increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and minimizing waste within their supply chains. At the same time, these businesses recognize that their supply chains must be agile enough to drive demand and accommodate uncertainty. As a result of this increased complexity, there has been a surge in demand for strategic problem-solvers who can successfully oversee the full scope of supply chain activities.
Georgetown’s Master of Professional Studies in Supply Chain Management prepares you to meet this demand. Whether you’re looking to advance in your current career or transition into the supply chain profession, this graduate degree will equip you with the expertise you need to deliver value and drive success within your organization.
Maximizing the value of a company’s supply chain requires managing more than just inputs and outputs to get the right products to the right customers, in the right place, at the right time. Instead, it requires strong integration with other functions within the organization, analytics that anticipate and address future needs, and strategic partnerships that drive long-term value—not just short-term gain. An integrated, agile supply chain also requires a well-rounded leader, who is able to manage complex systems, identify issues, build relationships, optimize performance, and devise resourceful solutions to any problems that arise along the way.
Our program introduces you to the intricate, multifaceted world of managing supply chains. Through a blend of case studies, guest speakers, and hands-on experience, you’ll explore key concepts such as process design, operational continuity, corporate social responsibility, data analytics, and financial analysis while mastering the latest tools and best practices needed to create seamless supply chains. Upon completing the program, you’ll be prepared to successfully align business processes, anticipate and meet customer needs, and establish a competitive advantage for your organization.
Ideal for working professionals, our program is designed to fit your schedule. We offer flexible options to take classes online, on campus, or through a combination of both—so you don’t have to interrupt your career to earn your degree. Plus, all of our courses integrate real-world application, so you’ll have valuable opportunities to practice what you learn through assignments that are authentic to what you’d experience in the workplace.
By the end of the program, you’ll have the functional supply chain knowledge and strategic problem-solving skills that will place you in high demand and prime you for success in this evolving field.
