Master of Science in Integrated Supply Chain Management
Address: University of Wisconsin-Platteville
1 University Plaza
Platteville, WI 53818-3099
Statement of Purpose
The Integrated Supply Chain Management master’s degree program (MSISCM) prepares individuals to enter or advance in the supply chain management field. The MSISCM program is interdisciplinary, with faculty and content from the School of Business, Industrial Studies, and Engineering. Graduates of the program will be able to deploy technical expertise for analyzing, optimizing, and managing complex global supply chains.
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of the MSISCM program, students will be able to:
- Evaluate the efficiency of a supply chain using a wide range of analytical frameworks.
- Execute strategies to optimize a global supply chain.
- Assess supply chain risks and recommend strategies to reduce them.
- Employ management techniques and strategies to align people, resources, and processes in a global supply chain.
- Utilize technology (customer synchronization, ERP, etc.) to extract insights and facilitate workflow.
The M.S. in Integrated Supply Chain Management is an online program designed to accommodate the needs of working adults. The program allows for rigorous study and development of substantial technical expertise while providing the flexibility to maintain full-time work. The curriculum focuses on the integration of business, production planning (i.e. industrial studies), and engineering to provide students with a highly-unique and versatile skillset that is valued by employers. Coursework heavily emphasizes application and real scenarios that current supply chain managers face on a daily basis.
This program is open to persons who hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in business administration, industrial/engineering technology management, industrial engineering, or a related field.
Students who have earned a bachelor’s degree from a nationally or regionally accredited institution recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation may register as a Special Student. Students will receive academic credit for courses taken while on this status. Students can be considered for admission into a degree program if they maintain a 3.00 grade point average in all graduate-level work and all other admission requirements are met. With the program area advisor’s approval, students may transfer up to 12 credits earned at UW-Platteville into a degree program. All graduate-level work will be included in computing a student’s GPA.
The Master of Science in Integrated Supply Chain Management is earned upon the successful completion of 30–33 credit hours (total varies depending upon foundation courses that are required based on the student’s approved degree plan). All courses are three credits unless otherwise noted. Graduate credits in which a grade lower than a "C-" has been earned will not be counted toward the degree; however, these lower grades will be reflected in the student's grade point average.
