Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management is the process of managing materials, information and financial flows in a network of suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and customers. The coordination and integration of these flows are critical to many manufacturing, distribution and service industries. The Supply Chain Management certificate program is an opportunity to learn how to effectively and efficiently manage the activities of the supply chain and prepare yourself for an in-demand career with solid earning potential. Emphasis will be on the importance of the supply chain and the role it plays in an organization's strategic development. Instructors are highly-regarded working professionals who combine current theoretical knowledge with skill-based learning and proven best practices that can be applied immediately to the workplace.

The Certificate in Supply Chain Management consists of six required courses totaling 120 hours of lecture, discussion, projects and interactive exercises - those completing the entire certificate will be awarded 12.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Students not pursuing a certificate are welcome to take selected courses individually.
