Economical. Customized. World class. Those are the distinctive qualities of an education from the University of Missouri–St. Louis College of Business Administration.

These student-centric characteristics have been recognized by Great Value Colleges in its ranking of the “Top 28 Affordable Online Master’s in Supply Chain and Logistics for 2019.” UMSL stands at No. 15 in the national listing and is the only Missouri-based institution represented.

The ranking focused on three criteria: cost, customization and quality. The top two schools in the ranking are perennial powerhouses Michigan State University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

“This ranking confirms that UMSL is a center of excellence for supply chain and transportation, not just in Missouri, but for the region and the country,” said James Campbell, chair of the Department of Supply Chain and Analytics. “We have built a great program with the help of our outstanding advisory board, and we are thankful for this recognition that emphasizes what we know to be true at UMSL: This is an institution where you can receive a serious education at a serious value.”

UMSL’s graduate offerings include MBA emphases in logistics and supply chain management as well as operations management. Graduate students can also earn certificates in logistics and supply chain management or business analytics. These programs are designed for busy, well-rounded professionals who want to earn degrees at their own pace. Classes can be completed entirely in the evening, and many courses are offered in online or hybrid formats.

The College of Business Administration additionally offers undergraduate specializations in supply chain management and transportation studies as well as doctoral education through a PhD in logistics and supply chain management and a DBA with research concentrations in all areas of business administration.
