In this global environment, value creation for many organizations is predicated on the effective management of their supply chain and operations.

The Supply Chain Management profession has therefore witnessed significant job growth coupled with steadily increasing salaries. Supply Chain Management is truly a global field that offers employment opportunities with a wide array of career options and advancement paths. A recent report by the US Department of Labor projected Supply Chain and Operations Management related jobs to grow by approximately 500,000 between 2012 and 2022.

The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management, offered by Silberman College, enables individuals to develop the requisite skill sets to take advantage of these attractive job opportunities. The 30-credit graduate degree program adopts an interdisciplinary approach to emphasize methodological, conceptual, and strategic aspects of supply chain and operations. Courses such as supply chain strategies, logistics management, global sourcing, procurement and negotiations, project management, demand and revenue management, sustainable and lean six-sigma, among others, provide a comprehensive understanding of different facets of supply chain. The program is offered on the Florham Campus in Morris County, offering commuting convenience to those working or living in northern or central New Jersey. Courses are scheduled on Saturdays using a blended pedagogy comprised of primarily in-class meetings coupled with the flexibility of a few on-line sessions. Faculty teaching in the program have strong academic credentials with considerable experience in applying SCM concepts to practice. The student-centered curriculum focuses on hands-on, project-oriented learning, and students can access resources such as the Bloomberg Quantitative Lab to facilitate their understanding of SCM concepts. Students can complete the program within two years while working full-time. Scholarships are also available to qualified candidates.
