Program Overview

By successfully completing three courses at Michigan State University (MSU), students can earn a master certificate in Supply Chain Management and Procurement. This program will focus on elements involved in function within supply chain management

If students are planning on taking all three of these courses, the approximate total cost would be $6,845. Courses are taught from a combination of video-based lectures, discussion boards, real-world case studies, virtual whiteboards, time-tested strategies, and professional experience offered by instructors and fellow peers. MSU strives to provide an environment that as closely resembles a classroom as possible, with the one exception being a virtual atmosphere. Students will also have access to E-Learning resources, which will assist students through their entire master certificate process. Students will have a dedicated program representative (similar to an advisor) that will help them sign up for classes and order books and materials, among other assistance.

Students will learn about topics such as how to evaluate and choose suppliers through using specific chain of command steps, as well as how to build trust between different parties in a supply chain. Lessons will also be given to show how to provide products to consumers, create a competitive advantage, support a company’s goals through supply chain management, and use critical thinking and problem-solving skills to quickly resolve issues.
