Certificate in Global Supply Chain Management

What is supply chain management?

Over the last several decades, supply chain management, as an interdisciplinary field, has gained broad acceptance by both academics and practitioners and is currently considered a core discipline in business/industrial engineering education. Supply chain management draws heavily upon expertise in operations management, strategic management, marketing, logistics, transportation, information technology, and decision sciences. Supply chain management is not merely an effort to increase operational and cost efficiencies; the implementation of supply chain management approaches and tools have strategic implications for an increasingly competitive business environment.

The Certificate in Global Supply Chain Management consists of 15 credits in a range of supply chain topics: operations, strategy, marketing, logistics, transportation, information technology and analytics.
