  5. 5. Ross MSCM Curriculum Broad-Based and Relevant The one-year Ross MSCM program consists of a Winter term and a Fall term. Between the terms, you will participate in a team-based summer project sponsored by a company. Your Ross experience will begin with an introduction to basic business disciplines such as accounting, economics, finance, marketing and organizational behavior. You will also have the opportunity, if necessary, to review some basic quantitative skills. Action-Based Learning A distinctive feature of the Ross MSCM program is the integration of the summer project into your curriculum. You will be part of a team executing a project with faculty supervision. In the Winter, you will prepare for an assignment developed in concert by faculty and a corporate sponsor so that you and your peers can hit the ground running, arriving at your internship site as a cohesive team skilled in communications and project management. During the summer, your team will work on site to address a real-world business challenge identified by your sponsor. When you return to campus in the Fall, you will engage in a detailed review and evaluation of your project. This action-based learning experience lets you work on real-world assignments that range from strategic analysis and supply chain audits to supply chain design issues and distribution challenges. That’s the Ross approach. Action-based learning gives you a distinctive educational experience and unsurpassed preparation to assume a leadership role in supply chain management.
