Executive Education - Program Overview
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there will be a 26 percent increase in logistics jobs by 2020. Logistics complexity — in the form of fragmented channels, increased product variations, and consumer demand for customized solutions — is on the rise worldwide. Taught by faculty experts in the highly ranked Department of Supply Chain Management at the W. P. Carey School of Business, the online supply chain management certificate will hone your skills and prepare you for the road ahead.
The curriculum for the supply chain certificate is in-depth and driven by best practices and industry benchmarks. Delivered by faculty who teach in the W. P. Carey Master of Science in Global Logistics (MS-GL) program, the certificate consists of two core courses and your choice of elective tracks, each offering two additional courses. Customize your certificate with a specialization in operation management, supply management, or logistics management.
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.
Although they carry no academic credit, completed courses count for 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. Review ISM guidelines for complete details.
Delivered online to fit your busy schedule, the supply chain certificate can be completed in fewer than six months. You will explore the intricacies of the supply chain field, leverage your current skills and expertise, and unlock knowledge that goes beyond the tasks and functions of your organization.
