The UAA Master of Science degree in Global Supply Chain Management (MS GSCM) is a 100% online program in which students working full-time anywhere in the world can develop supply chain management expertise through academic study, real-time case studies, applied simulations, and ongoing interactions with industry leaders and peers. Graduates of the MS GSCM program will be prepared to enter or advance in the global supply chain management job market with confidence and hands-on knowledge to manage leading supply chain practices, advanced information systems and technology, cost and finance factors impacting the supply chain, best practices for the human side of the global supply chain, and the ever-changing and complex requirements of the global environment and international trade. The MS program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB-International).

The degree requires completion of five 6-credit courses. Thirty credit hours are required to graduate and the program takes approximately twenty months to complete. A maximum of twenty-four students will be admitted and the program is entirely online. All five courses are divided into instructional modules and assignments are due on a weekly basis.
