Abstract: Individual courses in Supply Chain Management (SCM) are offered at business and engineering schools for over a decade. A few university degree programmes in the area are launched recently. This paper contributes to such offerings by presenting two curriculums, one for an undergraduate business major in Supply Chain Operations Management (SCOM), the other for a specialisation in SCM at the MBA level. Following a discussion on pedagogical issues in SCM, course descriptions and course sequencing for both programmes are presented. Course delivery aspects and potential career opportunities are discussed in concluding remarks.

Keywords: curriculum design; supply chain management; SCM education; undergraduate education; MBA; higher education; supply chain operations management; pedagogical issues; course delivery; career opportunities.
