USI Offers New MBA in Supply Chain Management

The University of Southern Indiana (USI) Romain College of Business has been approved to expand its Master of Business Administration (MBA) online programs to include a concentration in Supply Chain Management beginning in Fall 2024.

Designed to accommodate the needs of working professionals, this program can be completed 100% online or hybrid, with a mix of in-person and online classes. The 30 credit hour program can be completed in less than a year and is affordably priced at $12,900.

The Supply Chain Management concentration develops skills in managing the flow of materials, information, and finances from suppliers to manufacturers, retailers and consumers. Participants will learn to develop strategic competitive advantages through efficient systems and effective strategies that connect people with goods and services.

“Learning supply chain management is crucial for business professionals in today’s interconnected world for two key reasons: it enhances decision-making and fosters competitive advantage,” said Dr. Fernando Ferreira, Assistant Professor of Management. “First, understanding the intricate flow of materials, information and services within a company empowers professionals to make informed decisions across departments. Second, in a globalized marketplace, mastering supply chain management allows businesses to gain a significant edge. Professionals who understand international trade regulations, navigate complex transportation networks and build strong relationships with diverse suppliers can create resilient and agile supply chains.”

USI also offers MBA concentrations in several other areas including Accounting, Data Analytics, Engineering Management, Healthcare Administration, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Project Management and the General MBA.

USI’s MBA program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) which is considered the “gold standard” for business accreditation. The MBA program has also received countless accolades and recognition from outlets such as Fortune, OnlineU, U.S. News & World Report and Washington Monthly.

Students can start taking classes for this concentration during the Summer 2024 semester, which begins May 13. For more information on USI’s MBA program and how to apply, visit usi.edu/business/mba.
