Graduate Certificate Global Supply Chain Management
For those who don't need an MBA but want to update and broaden their professional skills, the Graduate Certificate in Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM) provides the theories and practices to be successful in this critical area of modern business.
Students take two core operations management (OP) courses, two elective OP courses, and two other elective courses, as approved by the program director, for a total of 18 units. The two core OP courses cover key strategic, design, tactical, and execution management knowledge. The two elective OP courses allow students to tailor their certificate in GSCM. The two other elective courses allow students to broaden their knowledge either in GSCM or in related areas such as marketing, finance, technology, project management and international business.
In addition to academic knowledge, students will have the opportunity to create a career plan to accomplish their goals with the support of academic, industry, and alumni advisors.
