Rutgers MBA in Supply Chain Management
My Passion is Supply Chain Management - Ruby, Rutgers MBA '13
Supply Chain Management (SCM) is one of the strategic MBA concentrations at Rutgers Business School. The curriculum was designed by faculty with input from the Center and its industry affiliates to ensure that it is both comprehensive and current. All MBA students take "Operations Analysis" as part of the core curriculum. In addition, full-time students electing to concentrate in SCM must take three required 3-credit courses, “Supply Chain Management Strategies”, “Procurement Management & Global Sourcing”, and “Supply Chain Management Industry Project” plus an additional 6 credits of elective courses in two primary areas of focus: “Procurement and Sourcing Management” and “Supply Chain Performance Optimization and Technologies”. Students in the SCM concentration also have opportunities to earn course credit while working on real-world industry projects sponsored by corporations affiliated with the Center.
The Center, which enjoys the participation of a multidisciplinary faculty and strong leadership from senior executives from prestigious companies in the region, conducts cutting-edge research and serves as a valuable business resource. Preparing students to meet and exceed the expectations of future employers is a critical mission of Rutgers' supply chain management program. Companies actively seek Rutgers graduates for their supply chain management hiring needs, both for internships and full-time opportunities. The Supply Chain Student Initiative (SCSI) led by top students, partners closely with local corporations to familiarize students with industry hot topics and business leaders. Each year, the Center’s Advisory Board grants scholarships and leadership awards to MBA students who demonstrate academic excellence and commitment to the field of supply chain management.
