Lead the seamless and reliable connection between suppliers and consumers
Two women discuss a sustainable business project

In the age of overnight shipping and global supply chain delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations are seeking professionals able to lead and develop sustainable, socially equitable and profitable supply chains – the networks that turn raw materials into fully packaged, sales-ready goods available in stores or delivered to your home. 

Supply chain management is a rapidly growing field, with the number of logistician jobs expected to increase by 18% from 2022 to 2032, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s six times higher than the average growth rate across occupations.

Sustainably sourcing goods while navigating fair labor workforce practices across countries has impacted all areas of international trade and global supply chains. The Graduate Certificate in Global Supply Chain Management will prepare you for higher levels of management with skills related to product flow, just-in-time delivery, ethics, risk management, innovation sustainability and more. 

A strong supply chain can create significant competitive advantages, but leading it requires a specific set of skills: It involves systems thinking, negotiations, and streamlining complex operational and logistical challenges. After completing the Graduate Certificate in Global Supply Chain Management, you will be ready to navigate this dynamic and changing industry, managing resources and relationships with suppliers and customers worldwide.
