Curriculum 

The Syracuse University MS in SCM began as a 22 month distance learning format.  In 2016 the program moved to a 12 month, full time “boots on the ground” program at Syracuse University. This model provides faster pay-back to your sponsoring unit, time to immerse yourself in your studies, meet faculty and each other face to face, a shorter graduation horizon and retains the academic advantages and prestige of the SU program. The curriculum provides you with a seamless integration of supply chain management knowledge and leadership. And the full time program allows you meet other full time students in our 60 year old Defense Comptrollership Program as well as students in our traditional MS in SCM program.
