Organizations and Opportunities for Experience


While classroom instruction is the foundation of your professional preparation, experiential learning is where skills are enhanced and even tested. While pursuing your MS in SCM at Whitman, you will find an abundance of opportunities to listen, learn and engage through involvement in student clubs, internships, competitions, corporate visits, seminars and networking events.
