Duquesne University Launching New Grad Program in Supply Chain Management, Master’s Certificate Program
The Palumbo-Donahue School of Business at Duquesne University will offer a new M.S. in Supply Chain Management program in the fall of 2018.
Designed for working professionals who may complete the program at their own pace, this 30-credit blended program includes both online and evening classes on site. The hybrid format provides flexibility and convenience, and opportunities to collaborate on real projects and network with supply chain leaders.
“Our outstanding faculty have created a distinctive set of new graduate offerings aimed at developing confident, well-rounded supply chain leaders who are guided by a strong ethical framework,” said Dr. Dean McFarlin, dean of the Palumbo-Donahue School of Business.
Also beginning in the fall of 2018, the School of Business is offering a 15-credit Master’s Certificate Program designed for working professionals who have earned a bachelor’s or graduate degree or who have business experience and want to improve their knowledge of supply chain management.
“These programs will be offered in a hybrid format, giving students hands-on, face-to-face learning experiences as well as convenient online coursework,” McFarlin said.
This November, the School of Business will launch its new Center for Supply Chain Management, featuring specialized supply chain labs that will highlight the new graduate programs’ initiative to integrate information systems material into the supply chain curriculum.
“We are excited for the opportunity to introduce programs that will be differentiated from other graduate supply chain programs by the integration of information systems as it enables supply chain management,” said Dr. John Mawhinney, director of Duquesne’s supply chain management program. “Students will be positioned to pursue additional credentialing opportunities that will further set them apart in the marketplace.”
