“The Wisconsin School of Business has been teaching an end-to-end, customer-focused curriculum since 1991—before ‘supply chain management’ as we know it today even existed. We are a recognized curricular leader among the country’s best supply chain programs. Our faculty are experts, and we bolster classroom learning with significant exposure to supply chain industry leaders. This new master’s program was designed to build on that strong foundation and position program graduates to fill a growing skills gap.”
