Supply Chain Management and Information Systems Graduate Certificate

Charlton offers a number of graduate certificates—in flexible formats: online, blended, and in the classroom.

Advanced business skills for career development

These short, focused academic programs are designed to give working professionals advanced skills in a specialized area.

You must have earned a bachelor's degree to be eligible for admission to one of the graduate certificates. Students may pursue a graduate certificate without matriculation into the MBA program. If you later decide to pursue the MBA, some or all certificate courses may count towards the MBA (if the final grade is B or better).

Developed from an international perspective, this 12-credit certificate seeks to develop creative and competent supply chain managers. The program focuses on practical knowledge—allowing students to examine various models of supply chain management, to troubleshoot issues, and to evaluate and analyze current supply chain efficiency and productivity.
