The Post-Graduate Global Supply Chain Certificate program

The Post-Graduate Global Supply Chain Certificate program enriches supply chain practitioners, and graduates of qualified university-level supply chain programs with global perspectives, insight into international markets and supply chain practices, and business culture. The goal of this program is to build on qualified university-level supply chain programs with international supply chain practices and foreign language components to enhance the Global Supply Chain Competence of graduates.

GSCC certificate

The Post-Graduate Global Supply Chain Certificate program integrates Global Competence with supply chain education to produce graduates who are highly coveted in today’s competitive, interconnected global economy.


The Three Main Elements of the Program

Supply Chain knowledge

  • As a prerequisite, students should have foundational knowledge of international logistics and supply chain management. Students who are enrolled in or have graduated from an ALEP qualified program are deemed to meet the Supply Chain knowledge requirements.
  • To support school programs which do not meet ALEP requirements, GSCC has developed qualified online university-level courses that allow students access to quality education in logistics and supply chain.

International knowledge

  • Global supply chain managers should have a good understanding of global conditions and current events and the ways that the world is interconnected.
  • Students in this program are required to have knowledge of supply chain practices in the three main economic regions of America, Europe, and Asia. Typically that would mean “Home Region + Two”
  • To fulfill the international supply chain practices requirements, students are required to complete both the theory and experiential components.
Theory component

Complete courses covering the business and regulatory environment of the overseas region with a focus on the manufacturing/distribution systems, transportation infrastructure, and economic development trends.

Theory component

Experiential component

Foreign language ability

  • The foreign language component requires that students have proficiency in at least one foreign language. Generally “Home + 1” would apply to language ability.
  • To satisfy the foreign language ability requirement, students has the following options:
    Earn a score on a standardized test that equates proficiency level
    Pass a university-level course taught in a foreign language
