Towson offers new master's degree in supply chain management
MHEC-approved program only one of its kind in Maryland
TOWSON, Md. (March 1, 2011)—The College of Business and Economics at Towson University will introduce a Master of Science degree in supply chain management beginning this fall.
The only one of its kind in Maryland, the degree will teach professionals to manage, analyze and control activities across the entire supply chain, from upstream procurement and logistics to downstream distribution channels.
This applied program ensures that students gain valuable professional experience before ever earning their degrees. Participants earn a post-baccalaureate certificate upon completing the first five courses, and will be well prepared for industry certification tests.
Upon graduation, students will be poised to assist companies, consulting firms and government agencies that need to achieve a competitive advantage and cost efficiencies by improving their supply chain performance. Other key industries include information technology, transportation, health care, telecommunications and distribution.
The degree is Maryland’s only Master of Science degree program in supply chain management approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission. The program receives support from a $85,728 BRAC Higher Education Grant.
Admission to the program will be limited to fall terms and classes will be held exclusively at the Higher Education and Conference (HEAT) Center in Harford County. Continuous enrollment is required. Courses are offered on evenings and weekends for working professionals.
