WEST LAFAYETTE -

Purdue University is offering a new pathway for online students seeking a master's degree in global supply chain management. The deal involves students enrolled in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's MITx MicroMasters Program.

Purdue's Krannert School of Management will waive 10 credits toward a master's degree for students who complete the MicroMasters program. The program consists of five online courses and a comprehensive exam delivered online that represents one semester of coursework. Purdue says students can continue their work toward a supply chain management degree at Purdue, MIT or six other universities in the U.S., Australia, Guatemala, Malaysia and Spain. 

"Students and employers need exceptional education delivered with flexibility and modularity, especially in disciplines like global supply chain and operations management," said David Hummels, dean of the Krannert School of Management. "We are proud to work with MIT in creating a unique pathway for well-prepared students to complete a highly ranked master’s degree in SCM with great access to high-profile faculty expertise, hands-on experience from local company projects and state-of-the-art educational technologies."

Sanjay Sarma, vice president for open learning at MIT, says the online courses provide the same "rigor and relevance" as the material taught in MIT's supply chain management program. You can learn more about the Purdue pathway by clicking here.
