    MS in Global Supply Chain Management Admissions

    The USC Master of Science in Global Supply Chain Management program uniquely prepares you for an increasingly global, complex, and ever-evolving world in supply chain management. We offer a world-class academic foundation in supply chain management with real-world applications in the form of live projects for leading companies as well as international and domestic site visits.

    We offer two delivery options. The Residential program is designed for new professionals and recent college graduates to complete their degree at USC’s main campus in Los Angeles, the nation’s largest international trade hub. The Executive (Online) program offers working professionals the flexibility required to complete their degree while working full-time.

    Whether you have 10 years of experience working in supply chain, logistics, or have just graduated, the Master of Science in Global Supply Chain Management is flexibly designed around your academic and professional goals. The program includes two one-week experiential trips to international supply chain hubs in Singapore and Los Angeles, where students learn from local industry experts and policy makers, tour cutting-edge companies and facilities, and conduct their own research and presentations.

    All students work on real industry projects to earn their Lean Six Sigma Green Belt through our collaboration with the Randall R. Kendrick Global Supply Chain Institute and prepare for the digital transformation through core courses and electives covering supply chain analytics, blockchain, and artificial intelligence. In addition, our program is a joint program offered by the Marshall School of Business in collaboration with the Viterbi School of Engineering, which are two top-ranked professional schools at the University of Southern California and we are currently the Number One Ranked Online Graduate Business Degree Program with U.S. News & World Report.
