Advanced Supply Chain Management (Post-Baccalaureate Diploma)
Gain internationally relevant knowledge and skills with the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Advanced Supply Chain Management. Courses cover topics including quantitative modeling, warehousing, transportation, knowledge management, logistics, global sourcing, project management, inventory planning, accounting, law and contract, business strategy and more. You’ll also gain skills in business communications, report writing, teamwork, ethics and negotiating.
Stand out in the job-market with professional designations
You’ll graduate ready to take the Supply Chain Management Professional (SCMP) designation exam, which is Canada’s most sought-after supply chain management professional accreditation. Douglas is one of the top non-master degree programs in Canada, officially recognized by Supply Chain Canada, to prep you for SCMP designation, with 77% of SCMP’s credit hours being built into our Advanced Supply Chain Management program.
You’ll also be ready to take the Certified in Planning and Inventory Management exam, which will show future employers that you have the resilience and agility to manage supply chain risks in an ever-changing world.
Get paid, full-time work experience while you study
Put your skills to work by joining the optional Co-operative (Co-op) Education Program, which alternates semesters of study with paid, full-time work in your field. You’ll earn money while gaining experience, building your resume and getting an employer reference, all before you graduate. To participate in Co-op you need to plan two semesters in advance, so we strongly recommend contacting the Co-op Office at the start of your program.
If you'd like to continue your education, all Advanced Supply Chain Management classes transfer into the Bachelor of Business Administration in Management with a Concentration in Supply Chain Management at Douglas College.
