This leadership-driven certificate program will provide you with an expansive network of peers to solve some of your most critical challenges while developing you as a leader.

This virtual certificate program features live and interactive instruction from some of the most noteworthy US and Internationally based supply chain and leadership experts. Learn alongside fellow executives as we discuss the remarkable complexities of navigating regional, national and global operations with an emphasis on leadership.

"The best supply chains are prepared and have the resources to compete."

Our global industry experts and faculty will cover key subjects that are top of mind with today's supply chain leaders continually seeking to lead and develop operational competency, capability and resiliency. Join us June 14 - 18, 2021 for a unique, leader-to-leader executive education experience.

Session topics will include: Leading change, agility, leadership shift, hidden risk detection, geo-political landscape impacts across EU/UK/Russia/China and the USMCA, critical global sourcing decision making, competitive logistics strategies, ethics & trade compliance, supply chain security, supplier relationships, organizational structure & operations, and more.

Key learnings from the impacts of geo-political shift and the human health challenges brought about by COVID-19 will be invoked throughout the program from a talent and supply chain perspective as we tackle the here and now...as well as our foreseeable future.
