Global Supply Chain Management Certificate

Starting Fall 2018

The Department of Management, Trulaske College of Business, and the Department of Industrial and Mfg Systems Engineering, College of Engineering, at the University of Missouri are offering an interdisciplinary undergraduate Certificate in Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM).

Over the last several decades SCM has gained broad acceptance by both academics and practitionersand is currently considered a core discipline in business/industrial engineering education. SCM draws heavily upon expertise inoperations management, strategic management, marketing, logistics, transportation, information technology, and decision sciences.SCM is not merely an effort to increase operational and cost efficiencies; the implementation of SCM approaches and tools have strategic implications for an increasingly competitive business environment.

A career in SCM presents with a wide range of opportunities. The 2016 Peerless Research Group (PRG)/Logistics Managementsurvey,reported a $105,675 average compensation for occupations within the scope of SCM. According to the 2017 CNNMoney/PayScale survey, a SCM director’s position is among the best jobs in America. The potential job functions in SCM include purchasing, operations and production, transportation, distribution, supply chain planning, warehousing and materials handling, import/export operations, sales, inventory control, and supply chain analytics.
