MS in Supply Chain Management: What we're looking for
Driven professionals with experience or interest in supply chain management should apply. Showcase your background and potential as a student, manager, and leader through the MS SCM application process. Candidates are carefully considered as part of a holistic review and selection process.
Applicants must have an equivalent to a 4-year U.S. bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university
A minimum of 3 years of full-time professional work experience is required (internships not included) at the time of application submission.
Military veterans have the distinct advantage of gaining on-the-ground experience in logistics while developing skills critical for success in managing supply chains end-to-end: you are quick learners, self-starters, and creative problem solvers who work incredibly well under pressure. Our military students come from various functional areas, including supply chain, finance, communications, and management. Many utilize the MS in Supply Chain Management to pivot into new areas of supply chain, such as sourcing or analytics, or make the transition to a civilian career.
- The non-refundable $75 application fee is waived for applicants who have served in the US Armed Forces for any length of time before submitting an application.
- Veterans attending the University of Minnesota will be assessed resident tuition rates for their degrees. The resident tuition waiver will be automatic for veterans with a DD-214 on file that receives educational benefits. For more information or to receive in-state resident rates, please submit a copy of your DD-214 to University Veterans Services.
