The recent pandemic has produced a disruption in the conventional wisdom surrounding logistics and supply chain management. This process is sometimes called “discontinuous change” as opposed to the normal continuous change process. The risks associated with global sourcing has required managers to rethink the supply chain. A reanalysis of existing sourcing practices by well-trained logisticians fully versed in business analytics is not just a hot topic; it is the only way to avoid a significant competitive disadvantage over the next decade.
Master of Business Administration (MBA) students and those who already hold an MBA may select Logistics and Supply Chain Management as an add-on certificate. The Logistics and Supply Chain Management Certificate will prepare those who complete the program for careers in Materials Management, Purchasing, Marketing, Inventory Management, and Quality Management.
The graduate student will have acquired the knowledge and skills to manage:
- The movement and storage of materials
- The flow of goods, services, and communications
- The inventory control function of a business unit
- The purchasing function of a business unit
- The sourcing decisions of a business unit
- The strategic implications of the areas being managed
