Graduate Certificate and Graduate Letter of Completion in
Supply Chain and Logistics Management
Two online programs for professionals seeking to upgrade their supply chain and logistics skill sets in order to become more competitive in a global marketplace.
The Supply Chain and Logistics Management Graduate Certificate or Letter of Completion will be awarded to students who, upon admittance to either program, complete the following coursework:
| ||Certificate ||Letter of Completion |
|Total Credits ||18-22 credits ||9-13 credits, minimum |
|Courses ||6-7 required courses || |
2 Required Core Courses, 1 Elective Course
The ASCLM Certificate program is designed for working professionals in and out of supply chain and logistics management who are in need of an in depth education in the field for enhanced career opportunities. In some instances, individuals with little or no educational background have had successful careers within the field and require a formal education. Others may wish to begin a career in the field and the program is designed to provide coverage of a wide variety of subject areas central to the profession. The program is also appropriate for individuals who have education or experience in science, engineering, or liberal arts, have employment in SCM or logistics management (LM) related fields, and wish to strengthen their marketability in the fields of SCM or LM.
Finally, many individuals in the armed forces worked in the area of logistics for the military. While this was excellent practical experience, these individuals may wish a formal education in SCM or LM to enhance their career opportunities. The six required courses provide a comprehensive overview of contemporary theory and practice of SCM and LM.
Graduate Letter of Completion
The Letter of Completion in Supply Chain and Logistics Management (SCLM) is designed for working professionals who would like a formal credential in supply chain and logistics management, but do not have the need for a complete graduate certificate. As such, it is similar to the graduate certificate but can be completed in less time with less course work. There are three required courses (one of which may be waived with suitable prior education or work experience) and one elective course where the candidate can choose the course they feel will best serve their career.
The Letter of Completion will be useful for professionals who seek to advance their knowledge of supply chain and logistics management either because they are currently working in the field and have academic qualifications outside of SCLM, or those who wish to enter the field in order to advance their career possibilities. Members of the military with experience in logistics who are transitioning may find this letter of completion a particularly advantageous way to signal to employers that they possess not only experience but also formal knowledge in the area.
