Master of Science (Supply Chain Management) programme is hosted by the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Faculty of Engineering jointly with The Logistics Institute- Asia Pacific and Department of Decision Sciences from NUS Business School. It is a well-structured integrated multi-disciplinary programme which combines topics from business and engineering and is ideal for mid-career professionals who are keen to advance their career in supply chain management.
