Global supply chain management encompasses not only the design and planning of supply chain activities, but also the execution, control, and monitoring activities that help companies to build a competitive infrastructure and create net value.
As part of the certificate, students engage in experience-based learning through an applied project, specializing in either supplier diversity or supply chain management. Students may also develop additional depth in supplier diversity by completing an independent project with Katz's regional corporate partners.
