Supply Chain Management (SCM)

What is Supply Chain Management and 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.
