Supply Chain Management Principles

Stuart Rosenberg, instructor

Supply chain manager’s jobs have lots of moving parts and can be involved in everything from sourcing raw materials, to overseeing production, to dealing with the vendors who sell products. And yes, they’re well-compensated for their efforts, with a median annual salary of $74,590.

Our program teaches you the basics of the field and the various kinds of careers and certifications it can lead to. On completion, students receive the Supply Chain Management Principles Certification from the Center for Supply Chain Education (CSCE), a credential that helps prepare you for more advanced certifications and boosts your credibility in areas from customer service to transportation. In fact, one of the biggest plusses supply chain management offers is that its skills translate to jobs such as purchasing agent and operations manager.

The Supply Chain Principles Certification also stands alone as a high-level overview of supply chain management. 16 sessions/40 hours
