MDM Fast Track

Further Your Leadership Skills

The MDM Fast Track has Three Phases instead of the Five Phases that the consists in the Full Track. The Fast Track is meant for people with greater experience within the Distribution Industry who are looking to further their Leadership Skills.

  • The First Phase is an abbreviated version of the Full Track. There are 7 Leadership Courses. You then skip the Second and Third Phases and go right to the Fourth Phase.
  • The Next Phase is the Final Assessment which will be a culmination of all the learning and training received during the Master's program. A Study Guide is provided.
  • The Final Phase is the Capstone Project. Candidates must submit a case study that illustrates how they successfully implemented a strategy or approach within their company and which demonstrates their aptitude and understanding about for its success or failure. Candidates will then present their paper to the Graduate Review Committee who will grant them their MDM Certificate.


The 3 Phase MDM Program must begin within 3 months of enrolling. The MDM Fast Track can be completed within a year. The flexible approach to training gives candidates, employers and mentors the ability to work through the curriculum as work demands shift.
