Note the difference compared to the full-time 10-month SCM Masters Program. For the Blended SCM Masters program, we will not require applicants to take the GMAT or GRE test, nor will we be looking at their undergraduate GPA, nor the undergraduate courses they have taken. Performance in the five online courses and comprehensive final exam will substitute for these items. This allows learners with non-traditional backgrounds and education to enter into the SCM masters program.

However, since the Blended Masters students will need to complete their research project in only five months instead of the usual 10 months, we will be looking closely at the outline of their proposed research project. Successful candidates will need to put time and energy into carefully preparing their research project in advance of their application, preferably including engagement with a company or agency or other organization to sponsor their project.
