Courses

Although the courses in the online supply chain management certificate program are presented in a logical sequence, you may take them in the order that best fits your needs and schedule.

No academic credit is attached to courses within the program. However, after completing each course, you will receive 4.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), which can be applied toward the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) CPSM recertification, CPM recertification and/or APP reaccreditation program requirements.

Weekly quizzes and readings enhance your knowledge with a final, overall assignment due at the end of the course. Coursework can be completed on your time throughout the week, with all work being due by Sunday evenings.
