Program description

Supply Chain ManagementDevelop a broad cross-functional managerial perspective.

Exceptional management of the production and delivery of a firm's products and services – its supply chain – is essential. Washington University's Olin Business School equips graduates to stand out in this challenging and critically important career field.

Disruptions in any link of that supply chain can have disastrous consequences. And mastery of this extremely complex set of tasks and functions can be a decisive source of strategic competitive advantage.

This intensive program brings together faculty renowned for their work in risk management and supply chain research, a cutting-edge curriculum and industry collaboration.

  • Utilize state-of-the-art tools for designing and managing world-class supply chains.
  • Engage in experiential learning simulations, negotiation exercises and case studies.
  • Apply your skills and knowledge in hands-on projects for corporate partners of Olin’s Boeing Center of Technology, Information and Manufacturing (BCTIM).
