PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS/SELECTION CRITERIA
MS SCM Professional Director:
The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management program launched in August 2016. Client development is critical for this programs success, as this new program targets experienced working professionals at corporations in the Twin Cities that would like to develop a robust supply chain talent pool. Our goal is to develop future supply chain leaders who view the topic from a strategic, global perspective.
The MS SCM Professional Director role requires significant client development efforts to recruit incoming students with 8-10 years of experience who are currently working full time. Approximately 90% of our inaugural class work full-time at corporate partners, with an average of 10 years of experience. In addition, one third of our first class are 100% sponsored.
In addition to recruitment, the Professional Director leads the Global Operations Strategy Capstone course. This experiential learning course offers students the opportunity to resolve a global supply chain issue for an external client, bringing the MS SCM curriculum into practice. For this course, the Professional Director must secure company-sponsored projects, teach content, and coach & mentor student teams throughout the capstone experience, delivering an experience that elevates what these full-time professionals are learning on a day-to-day basis.
The Professional Director of the MS Supply Chain Management program is responsible for developing corporate partnerships to recruit MS SCM students, incorporate clients into our program delivery (i.e., guest lectures, course advisory, etc.), and obtain experiential learning projects for the capstone course, Global Operations Strategy. The Professional Director also leads the Global Operations Strategy course, including teaching, curriculum, and coaching & mentoring student teams.
