Asynchronous/Synchronous Content Split

MSCM classes combine self-paced and live content

Core classes in the Master of Supply Chain Management (MSCM) program are split evenly between synchronous (live) and asynchronous (self-paced) instruction and are taught by premier faculty utilizing the latest technology and online teaching spaces on campus. The combination of flexibility and an action-based approach yields the necessary supply chain management skills to prepare graduates for leadership in this critical, fast-paced industry.

A balanced, flexible schedule

  • Synchronous: Engaging

    Synchronous (live) interactions are an essential part of the balanced MSCM experience, allowing you to collaborate with peers and faculty while in class. These engaging interactions further develop the comprehensive supply chain expertise employers seek in Fisher graduates. Classes for the MSCM program are offered after hours (ET). The synchronous portion of each course is typically 90 minutes long and usually starts between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. ET.

    • Interact live for ~1-2 hours each week per class, with class and small group discussions, case studies and guest lectures
    • Learn from industry experts and research-active, full-time faculty
    • Get hands-on supply chain experience through a capstone project course sourced from your current employer or a Fisher partner
    • Build your resume during three immersive, in-person experiences that connect you with industry leaders

    Attendance is required. Please work with your professor when scheduling conflicts arise.

    Sync Online Learning
  • Asynchronous: Convenient

    With ~50 percent of the MSCM content delivered asynchronously, you complete the required content within a given timeframe, on your schedule, from anywhere in the world. This flexibility reduces strict time commitments and adapts to any working professional's busy schedule.

    • Learn through rich, self-paced asynchronous content, including short video lectures, podcasts, interviews and carefully selected public content
    • Utilize industry-leading virtual tools, including Carmen Canvas and other powerful online tools, to collaborate with faculty, coaches and peers.

    • Increase information retention and reinforce classroom content by taking control of how and when you learn.
