Letters of Recommendation
Because our admissions committee focuses on work experience, we urge applicants to provide one letter of recommendation from their professional experience and one academic recommendation letter.
Please check the box under Waive if you wish to waive any rights you might have to inspect and review the recommendation. Once the letter writer sees that you have waived, you cannot later un-waive.
After you have entered the information about your recommenders and saved it, visit Letter Status to request letters from your recommenders.
Required Video Statement
Please record a video statement (5 minute time limit) answering the following questions:
- Question 1. Why would you like to study for a master’s in supply chain management, and what in your background prepares you?
- Question 2. Describe the perfect job that you would like to get after you have completed the supply chain Master's program.
- Question 3. What global supply chain problem do you find the most interesting and why?
