On the strength of its alumni outcomes, the Carlson School’s Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (MS SCM) was ranked among the world’s best in the QS Business Master’s Rankings 2023.

The MS SCM program landed at No. 8 in the U.S. and No. 18 in the world in rankings released Thursday.

“Throughout the pandemic, we’ve seen how much of our world relies on supply chains,” says Kingshuk Sinha, Elmer L. Andersen Chair in Sustainable Supply Chain and department chair. “It’s a great honor to know that the Carlson School is out there solving those problems today and will continue to be leaders heading into the future.”

QS, also known as Quacquarelli Symonds, is a British company specializing in the analysis of higher education institutions around the world. Its QS Business Master's Rankings 2023 ranked schools from data collected using three surveys: the QS Global Employer Survey, the QS Global Academic Survey, and a survey completed by the business schools themselves. The survey conducted by schools covered quantitative indicators such as the salary of graduates, class profile, and other institutional data.

Several of the Carlson School’s programs placed in the top 15 in the U.S. in their respective QS rankings. The Master of Marketing program ranked No 4, the Master of Science in Business Analytics program ranked No. 7, and the Master of Science in Finance program ranked No. 12.
