Penn State's Smeal College of Business and World Campus are jointly launching a new program that allows working professionals to achieve a master's degree in supply-chain management by taking courses online. The Master of Professional Studies in supply-chain management program begins in the fall 2007 semester. Applications for admission will be available online on July 9 and be accepted until Aug. 1. The degree will take approximately two years, including summers, to complete; students beginning in the fall of 2007 will conclude their studies in August, 2009. The MPS/SCM program is designed specifically for current supply-chain professionals. It emphasizes problem-solving and leadership skills that are critical to leading business transformations through integrated supply-chain planning and execution, Penn State said. The curriculum offers 26 credits in supply-chain management, including four in project management and a four-credit professional paper. All courses will be developed and led by Penn State faculty, and delivered online via the university's World Campus.
