The University of Scranton proudly announces its latest online educational offering, an online Graduate Certificate in Supply Chain Management. The online certificate is designed to equip students with the technical skills and strategies needed to enhance their immediate skill sets, but also improve impacts on organization performance and profitability.
“Supply chain management has been gaining much popularity recently as companies recognize the strategic importance of efficiently managing the flow of raw materials, inventory and finished goods,” stated S.
