What’s driving every aspect of this field? Data. And how to analyze it.
Data-driven supply chain management, also known as supply chain analytics, is the only way to manage the ever-expanding global reality confronting us today — that e-commerce is leaving brick and mortar businesses in the dust and requires an entirely new set of skills to keep the links in the supply chain in good working order.
The Global Supply Chain Management graduate certificate prepares students for positions in the fields of strategic supply chain management, process improvement and quality, and supply chain risk management. Students will gain a solid understanding of global supply chain management, as well as the analytical and managerial framework and tools necessary to be successful in a variety of business environments.
Upon completion of the program, graduates will be able to:
- Explain how the key functional areas of supply chain management interact within the overall supply chain network.
- Apply statistics and quality management frameworks to analyze the efficiency of supply chain for quality improvement.
- Mitigate risk in the supply chain in order to respond to supply chain disruptions.
- Construct and utilize supply chain performance dashboards.
