What will I learn?

Gain an in-depth understanding

When you study towards Massey’s Master of Supply Chain Management you will gain a comprehensive understanding of supply chain concepts and the skills to solve complex problems.

The management of supply chain relationships and optimisation of global logistics are paramount to business success. Firms are constantly searching for innovative ways to enhance their value offerings hence many have come to realise the importance of capable supply chain professionals.

The Master of Supply Chain Management is the most advanced Massey qualification in the discipline. You will become a master of this subject area, equipped with a comprehensive understanding of supply chain concepts. The programme is specifically designed to help you develop independent learning skills and a critical perspective.

A research methods course gives you the skills to undertake scientific research. This is followed by your own in-depth research report on an area of interest to you.

The MSCM is 180 credits, which means you can complete this qualification in 1.5 years of full-time study.
