The Residency

Supply Chain ClassroomStudents in the online Master of Supply Chain Transportation & Logistics begin the degree program with the mandatory Residency in Seattle. During the Residency you’ll complete the first course in the program, SCTL 501: Introduction to Supply Chain Transportation & Logistics, while engaging with others in the program and getting familiar with UW resources.

The Residency is a valuable opportunity for new students to work together in person. You’ll begin developing personal relationships that can aid your online collaboration efforts throughout the program. It’s also a great time to meet our faculty and staff and advisory board members.
