A well-managed supply chain keeps business running smoothly, effectively and efficiently. TCU is preparing for the future of supply chain by delivering top-rated graduate supply chain programs.

TCU’s graduate supply chain programs jumped ten places in a recent study by Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company. The ranking is based on industry value (40 percent), program scope (40 percent) and program size (20 percent), gathered from surveys and interviews of industry and academia. Penn State ranked No. 1.

Earlier this year, SCM World ranked TCU Neeley’s supply chain program No. 13 in the U.S. and No. 17 in the world.

TCU Neeley offers three graduate programs to help supply chain professionals advance their degree and careers: master of science in supply chain management (MSSCM), MBA with a concentration in supply chain and part-time Professional MBA with a specialization in supply chain.

“Several factors contributed to TCU Neeley’s significant rise in the Gartner rankings, most importantly the depth and breadth of our programs. We provide holistic, end-to-end, in-depth instruction on all aspects of supply chain management:  innovation, planning, sourcing, creating, delivering and return,” said Morgan Swink, executive director of the TCU Center for Supply Chain Innovation and the Eunice and James L. West Chair of Supply Chain Management.

Here are key points from Gartner’s 2016 research on supply chain graduate programs:

  1. More U.S. and Canadian universities are unveiling supply chain majors and specializations, or rebranding logistics, transportation and operations research-focused programs as supply chain programs.
  2. The one-year MSSCM is especially popular.
  3. The average supply chain curriculum has grown in breadth. A broad, integrated curriculum is now standard, as is basic technology and analytics content.
  4. The MSSCM has a more specialized supply chain curriculum taught over a shorter duration than MBAs with supply chain concentrations.
