In a crowded classroom of students working on a supply chain management degree, one student sits forward listening intently.

Supply chain management integrates manufacturing operations, purchasing, transportation and physical distribution into a unified program. Careful management of these critical, value-adding components enhances the global competitiveness of organizations. Students pursuing a supply chain management degree get a comprehensive background in each area and the opportunity to choose concentrations in areas of particular interest. 
U.S. News & World Report ranks MSU as the nation’s No. 1 undergraduate program in supply chain management. MSU graduates with a supply chain management degree go on to do amazing things! 

College of Business Admission Process
First-year business applicants are first reviewed by the Office of Admissions for admissibility to the university. Then they are reviewed by the Broad College of Business for direct admission to the College of Business. During this time, the student's major will appear as business preference in their account (no additional action is required).

The Broad College of Business has a competitive admission program with limited space for direct admission. There are two pathways for admission:

  1. Direct admission from high school
  2. Secondary admission for current MSU students


Students learn how to improve supply chain operations, take the cost out of the supply chain, reduce supply chain failures and mitigate supply chain risk.
