Global Supply Chain Executive Development Program

Leading organizations now recognize the positive impact that can be achieved through supply chain management (SCM), such as enhanced competitive strategy, increased market share, and greater shareholder value. They are taking steps to build a competitive advantage through SCM, and they need talented individuals like you to design, execute, and manage their supply chains.

Through this course, you’ll learn to create value throughout your company’s supply chain and integrate logistics activities and strategies with other core areas of corporate competency.

This course is required for certification in Supply Chain Management. Even if you aren’t interested in certification, you can take this course independently.

Participants may earn continuing education units (CEUs) for this course as part of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professional's (CSCMP) Pro certification program.

This course is also available as a custom course on the Knoxville campus or at a location of your choice.
