SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
The supply chain is one of the most essential sectors of the Canadian economy, involving about 767,000 workers from a range of occupations and industries. The success of this sector in meeting its human resources and labour-market challenges has the potential to positively influence the future of Canada, and the quality of life that we all enjoy (Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council).
This graduate certificate program builds on the student’s previous education and work experience and introduces all facets of supply chain management and logistics from a theoretical and practical perspective. Program participants are provided with a comprehensive understanding of the principles and techniques considered essential for employment in this sector and benefit from an integrated field placement opportunity upon completion of the course work.
Students from SLC’s Supply Chain Management program have had the opportunity to participate in the SCMA Student Case Competition for several years. Working in a team, students explore a scenario pertaining to a supply chain problem. The teams develop recommendations based on their research, data analysis, and study of financial implications, and present their solution to a panel of industry and academic judges. The case competition allows students to enhance their academic skills by applying concepts, tools and techniques of supply chain and operations to solving a real world business problem.
The Supply Chain Management program content prepares students for employment in a variety of roles in this growing industry. Graduates will find challenging employment as materials managers, retail and wholesale buyers, purchasing managers, strategic sourcing analysts, and supervisors in materials handling among other opportunities.
