The Master's Program Guide published a list of 10 Best Online Master’s Programs in Operations and Supply Chain Management, including #10 University of Hartford's Barney School of Business. UHart’s AACSB-accredited Barney School of Business offers supply chain management as one of nine possible specializations within its Master of Business Administration.

The students will find a 12-course 36-credit program that takes two years of part-time work to complete. The curriculum is built around nine required courses and three electives, which is where the supply chain management specialization happens. Core courses include a lot of MBA studies like Managerial Statistics and Analytics, Organizational Leadership, Global Strategic Management, Managing Organizational Processes, and Accounting for Decision Makers.

All of the program’s supply chain management coursework comes from three electives: Bargaining and Negotiations, Supply Chain Management, and Logistics and Supply Chain Engineering. Interestingly, the courses are open to students from the Barney School and the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture, so course instructors come from both colleges. Coursework concludes with a capstone integrating “functional approaches and environment issues by having students make strategic business decisions.”
