CSU Long Beach to Launch a Master of Science in Supply Chain Management

Program can be completed in either 16 or 21 months; will launch this fall

California's CSU Long Beach will launch a Master of Science in Supply Chain Management this fall, according to the school's website.

The new program, which is offered by the school's Center for International Trade and Transportation and its College of Business Administration, replaces CSULB's Master of Arts in Global Logistics.

“The global nature of business more than ever requires understanding supply chains and how they are managed,” the College of Administration's dean Michael Solt told the school newspaper.

“Our new Master of Science in Supply Chain Management will provide the knowledge and skills needed to successfully manage all parts of supply chains, and we will provide companies with professionals that will help them compete and thrive in today’s global business environment.”

According to the school's webpage, the new program is designed to provide students with training in modern supply chain management practices, analysis methods, technology applications, and strategy development.

The course curriculum covers a variety of topics, with classes like "Operations Planning and Analysis," "Business Economics," and "Global Supply Chain Strategy," among others.

In total, the course comprises ten courses, which can be taken in an accelerated format over 16 months or in a part-time format in 21 months.

The school's location in Long Beach, which hosts the US' second-busiest container port, provides many opportunities for students to experience real-world implications of supply chain management.

To apply for the MSc in Supply Chain Management, candidates should have a bachelor's degree with a minimum GPA of 2.7, along with a minimum GMAT score of 500 or a GRE score of at least 150 each in the verbal and quantitative sections and a 4.0 score in the writing section. International applicants must demonstrate their English skills by taking the TOEFL or IELTS.

CSULB's College of Business Administration is accredited by AACSB and also offers an MBA program.
