Curriculum

Two Plans for Pursuing Your Degree

At Whitman, we understand that curriculum, professors and practical learning are just a few of the variables that weigh in your decision of where to pursue an advanced degree. We know that an option for an academic timetable that fits your specific situation is also an important factor. To that end, we offer a traditional 9-month MS in SCM degree as well as a 16-month plan should you wish to include a summer internship prior to your last semester in the program.
