Graduate Certificate in Supply Chain Management

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Business Administration

Supply chain management has been gaining popularity in recent years as companies recognize the strategic importance of efficiently managing the flow of raw materials, inventories, and finished goods from point-of-origin to point-of-consumption. This involves the study of a variety of topics such as managing suppliers and procurement, outsourcing, assuring product quality, and customer relationship management, among others. Since a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, integrating such activities across the supply chain is key to extracting synergies that lead to a “win-win” outcome for all partners. The graduate certificate in supply chain management will provide managers/supervisors with the skills they need to succeed in this rapidly growing business discipline.

Admission requirements include a 3.00 undergraduate GPA (on a 4.00 scale) and three or more years of supervisory/ professional work experience.
