Global Supply Chain Management Master of Science

Supply chain management professionals are the engineers of business. Products and services are becoming more complex to manage as they become more globally integrated and reliant on technology. The Master of Science (MS) in Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM) program provides students with global supply chain knowledge that is reinforced by strong analytical, quantitative, and leadership skills needed to not only design innovative solutions and predict future trends, but also to become leaders in the fast-moving business landscapes in the global supply chain system.

Rooted in the strong technological and analytical traditions of Saunders College of Business, the MS in GSCM is an interdisciplinary program that integrates concepts from supply chain, operation management, analytics, industrial engineering, global business, and management.

“RIT’s Masters of Science in Global Supply Chain Management program provides students with exactly what we look for when hiring SCM talent. The STEM focused integration of technology, analytics, and practical application prepares students well for the supply chain jobs of the future.”

Nicola Maricelli, Vice President of Global Supply Chain at ITT Inc.
