Supply Chain Management Certificate
Improve your learning experience and your company's bottom line as you put theory into practice. Earning a certificate in supply chain management while you work full-time allows you to apply the knowledge you gain to your current job. With two online certificate programs, Graduate and Professional, you'll get to choose which is the best fit for you.
A certificate in supply chain management aims to provide you with foundational and advanced knowledge on how to tackle, resolve and manage a myriad of complex problems and issues that confront supply chain managers. These problems and issues arise within the boundaries of an organization as well as across organizations, cutting across traditional domains of (a) logistics or transportation, (b) manufacturing or operations, and (c) purchasing or sourcing. All courses are taught by standing faculty in the W. P. Carey School’s Department of Supply Chain Management, which is consistently ranked in the top five nationally by U.S. News & World Report.
Participants who successfully complete this program will receive credit for continuing education that may be applied toward ISM CPSM recertification, C.P.M. recertification, and/or A.P.P. reaccreditation program requirements. Note: ISM does not endorse, certify or sponsor this program or its content.
