Also available via Ecampus.
The Supply Chain and Logistics Management (SCLM) graduate option, within the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, offers students an alternative focus for their MBA that includes acquiring a solid mastery of international operations and supply chain and logistics management concepts and methods.
This MBA graduate option prepares graduates for operations, logistics and supply chain management in the service and manufacturing industries. In the past two decades, the loss of manufacturing jobs in the U.S. triggered attrition of innovation capabilities across many sectors of the economy contributing to the current anemic economic recovery. The U.S. needs a professionally-trained workforce that is able to manage internal operations and global supply chains in the manufacturing and service sectors and in government agencies. Well-trained operations and supply chain managers are also needed in global companies that operate outside the U.S., including companies that operate in the Asia-Pacific Rim.
Learning Outcomes: Graduates will acquire a solid mastery of global supply chain and international operations management concepts and methods.
Effectively use concepts of operations and supply chain management and qualitative and quantitative methods to make appropriate decisions in international business contexts that include new and unfamiliar situations.
Design appropriate management plans for global supply chains that are lawful, ethical and environmentally and socially responsible.
Develop a global outlook that reflects changes experienced and anticipated by firms and industries and understand the requirements for effective change management in global operations and supply chains.
Length: The MBA curriculum can be completed within an intensive one-year time frame. Part-time students, taking six to nine credits per quarter, can complete the program in two years on campus or in Portland.
The SCLM graduate option requires 60 credits of course work, including 15 credits of Core-1 courses, 27 credits of Core-2 courses, 15 credits within the SCLM graduate option, and 3 credits from a list of electives.
