MBA/Master's in Supply Chain Management — (MBA/MSSCM)

Make your mark on the global supply chain.

This dual degree program is for professionals who aspire to be well versed in all aspects of the business and develop expertise in supply chain and operations. The MBA classes can be completed in a full-time or part-time format, while the Master's in Supply Chain Management (MSSCM) classes are conducted in a unique hybrid blend of online and on-campus classes -- a format designed to meet the demanding schedules of supply chain professionals.

Complementary classes

Eight of the units you take for the MBA will count toward your MSSCM degree, and fourteen of the units you take for the MSSCM will count toward your MBA degree. This means that you will be able to complete both degrees with a total of seventy units.  We encourage you to apply for both programs prior to starting your degree.  However, it may be possible to add the second degree after you have already begun graduate school here at USD.
