Supply Chain MSCM Capstone Project - Students

Put classroom insights to work

We've infused unforgettable experiential learning throughout the MSCM curriculum, including a signature capstone project in which students address a real challenge and deliver tangible results to their employer or an assigned organization.

  • Apply learning to supply chain strategy
  • Think analytically and drive decision making
  • Work with partners to co-create value
  • Build additional technical and soft skills

How the Capstone works

Capstone projects are student-led but faculty-guided experiences that allow students to showcase their learning while providing immediate value to an organization. MSCM students work on a real-world business challenge facing their employer or a challenge facing one of Fisher's partner companies. 

The MSCM's three immersive on-campus experiences include a capstone introduction, in-depth project discussion, and presentations.

Project Examples

  • Consumer Home Delivery Demand Prediction
  • Cost Reduction and Procurement Strategies
  • Forecasting Seasonal Demand and Demand Prediction
  • Internal Controls and Risk Assessment
  • Inventory and Scheduling Optimization
  • Network Optimization and Global Distribution Strategy
  • Procurement Optimization
  • Segmented Supply Chain Strategies
  • Supplier Sourcing and Recommendations
  • Supply Chain and Distribution Analysis/Models
