Letters of Recommendation   

You must provide two recommendations from people capable of judging your professional and/or academic promise (i.e., supervisor, professor). Because our admissions committee focuses on work experience, we urge applicants to provide at least one letter of recommendation from their professional experience and a second from either their professional experience or academic experience.

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?

Video Tips and Guidelines:

  • Use a webcam to complete your video – there is no need to film in a studio or on a stage
  • Provide us with a link to the video (for example YouTube) in the URL field below. Please make sure the link is not private so that individual admissions committee members can access it. Make sure your video link does not expire and will be available throughout the review cycle
  • Make sure we can hear you clearly – please do not include music
  • Make sure we can see you clearly – ensure the light source is in front of you
  • Attire – please feel comfortable to dress casually, there is no need to dress up in formal attire
  • Be yourself - avoid reading a script, we just want you to talk to us, relax, and smile
