The Supply Chain Certificate program targets students who can contribute to various parts of the supply chain by means of specializations obtained during their higher education. The certificate provides a practical understanding of the principles of supply chain management and helps students develop an understanding of both analytic and technical methods which can be applied to optimize these systems.
Stillman School students who take four, three-credit courses that are part of the supply chain management program obtain the Undergraduate Certificate in Supply Chain Management. These courses are electives taken largely in the Junior and Senior years. Students obtain the Certificate as part of their normal coursework, in addition to their concentration in information technology management, marketing, finance, accounting etc.
Why is it important?
Supply Chain Management integrates supply and demand management functions within and across companies. Over the past few decades, supply chains have risen in prominence within many companies. This has created a growing need for students who can contribute to various parts of the supply chain by means of specializations obtained during their higher-education.
What do you learn?
Our main objective in the undergraduate supply chain certificate is to help students acquire the necessary skills and modeling techniques that can help analyze practical situations which arise in supply chains. Consequently, in all the courses, we emphasize examples from industry and use them to provide illustrations of the concepts in practice. The certificate provides a practical understanding of the principles of supply chain management and helps students develop an understanding of both analytic and technical methods which can be applied to optimize these systems.
