The Post Degree Diploma in Supply Chain Management is designed for students who have a bachelors’ degree and are interested in pursuing a career in a supply chain role (purchasing/procurement, warehousing, transportation, production/quality and/or inventory planning). The program is designed to suit all bachelors’ degree holders regardless of concentration, and will provide internationally relevant skills. The program provides students with industry relevant job skills and preparatory knowledge to attain an industry certification in Planning and Inventory Management from the Association for Supply Chain Management.

Graduate job-ready with the Career Boost program 

Designed for post-degree students, the Career Boost program prepares you for part-time paid or volunteer positions that complement your studies. You’ll participate in career-building workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions, career fairs, networking with employers, peer-led leadership meetings and more. Once you graduate, you’ll get the continued support, skills and knowledge you need to find a full-time job in your field.

Get valuable work experience through the Business Internship program  

In the Business Internship Program, you’ll apply the theory and knowledge you’ve learned in class into a real-world business setting. During your unpaid part-time internship, you’ll be assigned tasks and projects that junior management, marketing, business, administrative and/or sales employees complete in the modern workplace. 

To be accepted into the internship program, you must contact the Career Centre early in your studies at Douglas College.
