Master of Supply Chain Management
Three On-Campus Experiences

On-Campus MSCM Experiences

Bring online learning to life and future-proof your skillset.

MSCM students spend time on Ohio State’s main campus on three occasions throughout the program. These intimate and personalized learning experiences include workshops, on-site industry Gemba tours in Columbus, Ohio, executive speakers and in-person networking.

ONLINE INSTRUCTION MEETS HANDS-ON EXPERIENCES: These two- and three-day, in-person sessions utilize weekends so that they require students to be on campus no more than five weekdays during the entirety of the program. These experiences are an essential element of our programming and greatly enhance the online classroom learning, networking and professional development for our students. MSCM students are expected to attend the in-person sessions, with rare exceptions.
