The University of Washington online Master of Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics (SCTL) program prepares you to take a leadership role in the end-to-end management of transportation in a global supply chain, an increasingly critical capability for companies that want to prosper in today's world of heightened international competition. Enroll in this program and gain a comprehensive understanding not just of transportation systems, but also of how these systems function in the larger context of a complex global supply chain ecosystem.
The program's curriculum, incorporating both engineering and business courses, is grounded in quantitative and technical principles, with a focus on using data to inform decision-making. In addition to covering the fundamentals of managing transportation and logistics in the supply chain, the SCTL program tackles the most current challenges in the field, including greening the supply chain; deploying, managing and integrating information technology (IT) across the enterprise; and managing risks and disruptions.
Learn from expert UW faculty and senior supply chain leaders who face these operational issues on a daily basis. In the final phase of the program, you will have the chance to apply what you have learned to a real-world supply chain problem by completing two practicums. These practicums will give you valuable experience in researching, planning and implementing effective solutions in the field.
The Master of Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics is a part-time, online degree program designed for working professionals. Courses are delivered over the Web using interactive technologies that facilitate collaboration and interaction. There is a one-week, on-site course held on the UW campus at the start of the program.
