MSCM - A Unique Program and Opportunity

From the moment a student is accepted into the MSCM program, until graduation and beyond, the benefits of being a part of the MSCM program are vast. Because the size of the program is relatively small, approximately 100-130 students, each student is given individual attention. Once accepted into the program, each student is:

  • Provided a faculty advisor
  • Assigned a senior level student mentor
  • Paired with a business mentor from a leading Northwest company
  • Eligible for scholarships reserved exclusively for MSCM students
  • Included in business tours, special events, lectures and the APICS club
