Why Supply Chain Management?
Supply chain credentials and certifications advance your career.
Supply chain management helps streamline everything from day-to-day product flows to unexpected disasters. With the knowledge and education that our program offers, you’ll have the ability to properly diagnose problems, work around disruptions and determine how to efficiently move products.
Companies rely on logisticians to manage the movement of their products and supplies. Supply and distribution systems have also become increasingly complex. Employment is expected to grow*, as companies need more employees to move products more efficiently, solve problems, and identify areas for improvement.
