Global Supply Chain Management Graduate Certificate
The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, College of Engineering and the Department of Management, Trulaske College of Business at the University of Missouri are offering an interdisciplinary graduate Certificate in Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM).
What is it?
The graduate certificate in Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM) is a 12 credit-hour interdisciplinary certificate. It consists of:
- One Supply Chain course from the Department of Industrial & Manufacturing Systems Engineering in the College of Engineering
- One Supply Chain course from the Department of Management in Trulaske College of Business
- One Analytics elective
- One Supply Chain/Operations elective.
Why pursue it?
The courses will prepare supply chain professionals for successful careers by training them in operations management, analytics, sourcing/procurement, logistics, distribution, transportation, information technology, and decision sciences. A career in SCM can also include purchasing, operations and production, supply chain planning, warehousing and materials handling, import/export operations, sales, inventory control, and supply chain analytics.
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.
