Program Overview

At Michigan State University, students who are interested in learning more about supply chain management and operations can earn a master certificate in Supply Chain Management and Operations. This is a program dedicated to teaching participants about developing their Manufacturing Planning and Control (MPC) and integrated supply chain management skills. Students who are looking to advance in their current career or who are looking for a new job in this field are welcome to apply.

To earn this master certificate, students must complete three courses: Supply Chain Management I & II, and Manufacturing Planning & Control. Topics in this course include learning about profit through an effective supply chain, providing products to customers, how to manage inventories, resolving problems within network models, and implementing IS applications in designing and operations.

Within this course, students will learn through case studies, real-world examples and strategies, and discussing the knowledge provided by leading global research faculty. Since some students in this program will already be professionals in this field, peer learning is also highly encouraged. This can be done through emails and discussion boards. Lectures and coursework aren’t only available through a desktop computer or laptop; some mobile devices also support viewing capabilities for course material.
