2014/15 Program

Supply Chain Management

Our Program

Humber’s two-semester Supply Chain Management graduate certificate program provides you with a solid grounding in both business and global supply chain issues. Major changes in processes and technology have led to a high demand for workers with modern supply chain skills.

In two semesters, Humber students learn to research and analyze the marketplace; develop demand forecasts; evaluate suppliers’ capabilities to deliver; utilize technology such as Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing (SAP); develop aggregate and master production plans/schedules; and analyze business processes. Supply Chain Management students also learn industry-standard theories, methods, and techniques (Six Sigma, Total Quality Management, Just-in-Time, Lean, Theory of Constraints) and how they apply to supply chain management strategies and problem solving.

Humber is a SAP University Alliances member school, ensuring students learn this key supply chain management software. See Professional Accreditation, Endorsement and Recognition for more details.

“I considered a number of supply chain management programs. I chose Humber because it taught SAP, was accredited by the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (CSCSC) and ­Supply Chain & Logistics Association Canada (SCL), can be completed in just two semesters, and had the strongest reputation of any supply chain management program in the Toronto area.”
