Announcing the Master of Science in Supply Chain Management Degree at TCU

The DFW Metroplex is home to two major transportation hubs, Alliance and DFW International Airport, as well as hundreds of corporations producing, shipping and receiving products around the world. That makes the Neeley School of Business at TCU perfectly situated to provide an advanced degree for working professionals in the supply chain field to take their career to the next level.

“Companies have told us that they want advanced education options in supply chain, especially since a degree in supply chain management didn’t exist 10 years ago,” said Dr. Morgan Swink, executive director of TCU’s Supply and Value Chain Center and professor of supply chain. “Supply chain management has evolved out of an affiliation between purchasing, logistics and manufacturing into an integrated, multicultural, cross-functional discipline. The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management gives professionals and their companies a decided advantage in today’s complex, global business environment.”

Neeley’s Master of Science in Supply Chain Management is a 30-hour, evening-only, college-credit program beginning in fall 2013. Applications are currently being accepted through May 30.

The degree includes a two-week international experience to visit businesses and governments to better understand global opportunities and challenges. A field project (student thesis) teams each student with a faculty member to participate in vital research that immediately impacts the student’s company.

The Neeley School recently announced a non-credit option for supply chain professionals, the Supply Chain Management Certificate, to optimize on-the-job experience.

“The ability to respond to the complex, worldwide supply and demand of business is vital to give a company a competitive edge,” Swink said. “These two new advanced programs at TCU provide local supply chain professionals with the vision and skills to get ahead in today's global environment.”
