Global Supply Chain Management Certificate

The Department of Management, Trulaske College of Business, and the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing 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 practitioners and is currently considered a core discipline in business/industrial engineering education. SCM draws heavily upon expertise in operations 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 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.
