    A Powerful Network

    You’ll make an immediate impact on industry and your career with a Michigan Ross MSCM thanks to the Corporate Advisory Council.

    A distinct feature of the Michigan Ross MSCM Program, these industry leaders work with faculty to center the curriculum on the fundamental skills companies need to address their supply chain issues. Ross MSCM students can meet one-on-one with council members about trends in supply chain management, employment options, and career coaching through such channels as:

    • MSCM Mentorship Program
    • Networking events
    • Educational forums
    • Site visits and plant tours
    • Recruiting forums

    Curriculum gives you deep, functional supply chain management experience with the perspective of a general manager.

    Supply chain management isn’t a tactical function — it is a business function. It encompasses marketing, sourcing, manufacturing, logistics, inventory management, IT, and customer relations. The business acumen you’ll gain at Michigan Ross prepares you to approach problems holistically and become the kind of innovative leader companies need to manage the central nervous system of any global company — the supply chain.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
