Overview

AACSB logo

Success in today's marketplace requires that organizations deliver products and services that provide easily identified value for their customers. The digital supply chain management graduate certificate program draws on strengths within two departments to integrate source (strategic procurement and supply management), production (manufacturing and service operations), and delivery processes (demand fulfillment), with a focus on the use of information technologies as the critical enabler of supply chain efficiencies and responsiveness.

This graduate certificate will give students the tools and ideas that help shape and define the various components of value creation. Students gain knowledge and skills in the full spectrum of supply chain activities: supplier relationships, purchasing management, operations and inventory management, logistics and transportation, quality management and information technology.

This is a professional development program focused on building competency across the foundations of supply chain management. Students attain new skill sets to help them manage and enhance the value of today's complex supply chains.

Pathway to a master's degree

Are you a working professional who wants to earn your master's degree, but you don’t have time to take the GRE/GMAT? Then start in a graduate certificate program. This graduate certificate was designed as a pathway to an MBA or information science and technology MS.

The admission requirements are more relaxed and credit earned will count toward your degree. Once you successfully earn your graduate certificate, you can continue with the corresponding master's degree without having to take the GRE/GMAT. Completion of a graduate certificate program does not automatically guarantee admission into a corresponding graduate degree program. To continue in a master’s degree program, you must apply. If you are applying to a PhD program, you are still required to submit GRE/GMAT scores.

Accreditation

Missouri University of Science and Technology is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States.
