Expand Your Knowledge to a Global Scale

The current global supply chain landscape is defined by shrinking product life cycles, increasing competition and a growing amount of fragmentation driven by higher levels of outsourcing and offshoring.

To help navigate these increasingly complex and evolving business conditions, the global supply chain industry is in urgent need of junior, mid-level, and senior managers who possess the depth of knowledge and strategic mindset required to meet the business challenges of today and harness the opportunities of tomorrow.

The Lazaridis Master of Supply Chain Management program (MSCM) is a one-year program designed to build your capacity to master the key skills and concepts that will advance your career in this fast-growing industry in Canada.

An Innovative Design to Accelerate Your Career

The Lazaridis MSCM program is designed to fit your life as a working professional. Courses are delivered in Waterloo on Thursday and Friday evenings and Saturdays over three terms (September – August). After successfully completing the program, you will earn a Master in Supply Chain Management degree from the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University.

The rapid changes facing the global supply chain industry (exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic) have created a pressing need for managers in key functions who are well-equipped to impact all aspects of supply chain performance.

Your time in the Lazaridis MSCM program will allow you to master these skills and meet the high demands of this competitive industry.
