Michigan State University's (MSU) undergraduate Supply Chain Management (SCM) program is ranked #1 by U.S. News & World Report for the second year in a row, recognizing the faculty and quality of instruction behind the top-ranked MSU undergraduate program. The Supply Chain Management graduate program was ranked #2 by U.S. News in March.

"We are extremely proud of our U.S. News & World Report #1 and #2 rankings," said Dr. David J. Closs, John H. McConnell Chaired Professor of Business Administration and Chair of the Department of Supply Chain Management. "Topping the U.S. News list is a testament to our faculty's hard work and dedication to leading the world in supply chain education."

In an effort to expand student access to world-class, cutting-edge SCM education, MSU has partnered with University Alliance to offer non-degree Master and Advanced Master Certificates designed for busy working professionals 100 percent online. Students in the program learn online from the same award-winning faculty that teach on MSU's campus with the added convenience of video-based e-learning.

MSU offers several Master Certificates, including Master Certificates in Logistics, Operations, Procurement or Integrated Supply Chain Management, plus an Advanced Master Certificate in Integrated Supply Chain Management.

"Professionals everywhere now have the opportunity to develop the advanced supply chain knowledge and management skills needed in today's global marketplace. Individuals striving to master the latest technologies, strategies and best practices can choose from five different certificate options to customize their education focusing on logistics, operations, procurement or integrated supply chain management," according to University Alliance statements.

MSU also recently announced a new Master Certificate in Strategic Organizational Leadership & Management, and a Management Certificate in the Business of Hospitality. Each program is presented 100 percent online by the Broad College of Business in partnership with University Alliance.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
