The University of Denver's Transportation and Supply Chain Institute offers an MS in Transportation and Supply Chain Management designed to prepare transportation and supply chain professionals for leadership roles in the transportation, supply chain, and logistics industries. 

This professionally oriented degree combines a rigorous academic program one might find in an MBA program, delivered by highly qualified industry practitioners and faculty with insight from a board of directors composed of transportation and supply chain industry leaders, thereby ensuring that course content remains relevant and current. Throughout the program, students learn to effectively address the wide-ranging management and business challenges facing the global transportation industry while gaining an understanding of the broad range of transportation modes, supply chain, and leadership competencies needed to meet these challenges.

The program's unique format—a week-long residency held each quarter for five consecutive quarters and a week-long domestic or international trip—allows students to continue working full-time while earning their graduate degree. It also affords students professional networking opportunities that offer significant professional advantages for the future. Upon earning a Master of Science in Transportation and Supply Chain Management from the Transportation and Supply Chain Institute at the University of Denver, program participants join a group of distinguished alumni who have gone on to play pivotal roles in industry.
