The ability to effectively deliver products and services is core to organizational success. While striving for excellence in internal operations, organizations in virtually every industry rely on intricate supply chains to manage goods globally and meet the demand for products and services. Synchronizing the flow of products, information, and funds is complex and increasingly enabled by data, analytics, and new technologies.
WPI’s master’s in Operations Management and Supply Chain Analytics, a STEM-designated degree, prepares students for a career in managing the global demands, distributions, and fulfillment of goods and services. The MS in Operations and Supply Chain Analytics provides students the skills and hands-on project management techniques necessary to design and manage an effective supply chain while understanding how to create excellence in your operations and processes. As each of these factors can impact an organization’s profitability and overall customer satisfaction, professionals with training in both operations management and supply chain become an essential part of a company’s leadership team.
The operations and supply chain master’s degree is designed to provide students with a foundation in three areas:
Operations: internally focused, with an emphasis in the market on achieving excellence
Supply chain: designing and managing a network to support end-to-end delivery of goods and services
Operations analytics: methods to harness insights from data and support decision making
Students then build depth by choosing specialties in two of these three areas. The operations and supply chain analytics master's degree culminates in a real-world, team-based project, which ensures that students are prepared to be successful in a data-driven, technological business environment.
