MS Integrated Supply Chain Management Degree Requirements

Earn your degree by completing 30-33 graduate credits with a GPA of 3.0/4.0. If you attend full-time (nine credits per semester, fall and spring), you could complete the degree in two years.  Knowing that many adult students can’t enroll full-time, however, we allow students to take up to seven years from the date of admission to complete all degree requirements.
