Supply Chain Management Certificate
Program Director: Dr. Natalie M. Scala
Similar to the Master of Science in Supply Chain Management, the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate is designed to develop supply chain professionals who can manage, analyze, and control activities across the entire supply chain, from upstream procurement to downstream distribution channels. The types of employers targeted by this program include companies, consulting firms, and government agencies that need to achieve competitive advantage and cost efficiencies by improving their supply chain performance. This program has been designed by benchmarking the content and courses against industry credentialing offerings so that graduates of the program can proceed to professional certification based on the knowledge gained in the program.
Students have the opportunity to complete courses in a combination of face-to-face, online and blended formats.
Graduates with a supply chain management background can pursue careers as purchasing specialists, contract administrators, procurement officers and managers, supply chain management professionals, business analysts, demand managers and more. In fact, the majority of U.S. jobs fall somewhere in a supply chain, whether it is procurement, logistics and operations, marketing, or sales and service. International students may benefit from the program's STEM designation, which supports an optional practical training extension.
Applications for admission are accepted, and admission decisions are made, on a rolling basis.
Although decisions are made on a rolling basis, the following deadlines are observed:
- Fall admission – June 15 priority deadline; August 15 final deadline
- Spring admission – November 1 priority deadline; January 7 final deadline
Admission requirements for the Post Baccalaureate Certificate are the same as the Master of Science degree in Supply Chain Management.
Non-immigrant International Students
Program Enrollment: F-1 and J-1 students are required to be enrolled full-time. The majority of their classes must be in-person and on campus. See the list of programs that satisfy these requirements, and contact the International Student and Scholars Office with questions.
