Supply Chain Management Certificate Program (DISC)


The primary focus of this certificate is to provide students with in-depth knowledge regarding the complexity and challenges of managing Global Supply Chains.  Every function of global commerce - marketing, procurement, manufacturing operations, logistics, inventory management, information technology, and customer relations - are impacted by supply chain professionals.  Students will gain exposure to all of the supply chain elements individually, and understand their associated interactions as well as the interactions with the other business functions.  They will comprehend the need for balance and for managing trade-offs in the supply chain.  They will be better able to identify the key drivers and the associated managerial levers that impact supply chain performance.

The certificate will be of interest to anyone who currently has or seeks a primary or secondary role in supply chain management.  This includes those involved in procurement (sourcing/purchasing), operations, logistics, engineering, project and product management, as well as entrepreneurs, consultants, and general managers.


You must be a current Bauer graduate (MBA or M.S. Finance) student to enroll in any of our certificate programs.
