The Certificate Program in Supply Chain Management

(Thursdays, 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.)

The model of supply chain management is based on the idea that almost every product that reaches an end-user represents the collective efforts of numerous organizations. These organizations are referred to together as the supply chain.

Supply chain management (SCM) is a systematic approach to managing the flow of materials through every phase including product development, sourcing, production span functions, and logistics, as well as how to manage the information to coordinate these activities.

About the program:

This five-course certificate program will provide the concepts, processes, and strategies used in SCM to increase efficiency, reduce costs, facilitate a competitive infrastructure, improve customer service, and develop collaboration between suppliers and business.
