Effective as of Fall 2019

Supply chain and logistics positions are some of the most important jobs in an entire business. Think about it – if a manufacturer doesn’t have a steady supply of materials coming into their factories at the right price, business grinds to a halt.

When you think of supply-chain work, what comes to mind? Maybe, a guy driving a forklift in a dusty old factory? That outdated image is a huge hurdle for an industry that badly needs new talent in procurement, forecasting and analytics, logistics and transportation, and supplier relationship management. In fact, it is expected that Supply Chain Management (SCM) jobs will increase at rate of 22% for the next several years. Would you like to be part of this growth? If so, a Certificate in Supply Chain Management at Sinclair may be the right decision for your future.

By obtaining a certificate in SCM, you are better prepared in a wide variety of positions such as Fleet Manager, Warehouse Manager, Inventory Analyst, Procurement Manager, Production Supervisor, and Customer Service Manager in health care, government, manufacturing and distribution organizations.
