ASU Launches New Online Master’s Degree –

Students at Arizona State University will soon be able to pursue a Master of Science in Supply Chain Management and Engineering online.

The 21-month online degree program, offered through ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business and Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, will begin fall 2013. The program begins with a face-to-face orientation and the remainder of the program consists of students taking small, online classes with less than 50 students.

“This program is great for anyone dealing with supply management, procurement, purchasing, operations or logistics,” professor John Fowler, chair of the school’s Supply Chain Management Department, said in a press release. “Sometimes, people get promoted within an organization, but don’t have formal education in supply chain management, so this is a great way to get that extra boost. It also offers the chance to integrate the business-school and industrial-engineering perspectives on problems faced by the increasingly complex supply chains of modern companies.”

Curriculum includes coursework which focuses on the business and engineering approach to fundamental supply chain management, logistics management, and operations management; engineering courses on mathematical tools and techniques; and a capstone project.

The priority consideration application deadline is Feb. 1.

Arizona State University is regionally accredited by the North Central Association Higher Learning Commission and the W.P. Carey School of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
