Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management deals with the management of the flow of goods and services between businesses and locations, including the movement and storage of raw materials, of work-in-process inventory, and of finished goods as well as end-to-end order fulfillment from point of origin to point of consumption. Thomas University’s program provides students with the knowledge and skills to design and manage global supply chains during the entire life cycle of a product from design to distribution. In this program, students will learn to:

  • Effectively communicate concepts and competencies with an emphasis on ethical and professional standards, regulations, and contemporary best practices.
  • Apply problem-solving and decision-making strategies along the entire supply chain demonstrating knowledge of logistics, transportation, operations management, distribution, warehousing, end-to-end inventory management, sustainability, and process improvement.
  • Apply critical thinking and logical analysis skills in purchasing, sourcing, and procurement, and demonstrate an understanding of Supplier Resource Management (SRM). Demonstrate knowledge of and effectively communicate concepts and competencies in Purchasing and Sourcing in line with the CPSM certification (ISM) (requires 3 years’ applicable work experience)
  • Apply contemporary principles and frameworks for integrating processes and sustainability practices in supply chain management for value creation.
  • Identify and synthesize information to build metrics and dashboards to drive decision making, demonstrating supply chain competencies and measuring supply chain performance, including cost and price management.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of supply chain management and apply the Six Sigma methodologies of DMAIC and build a portfolio in preparation for three industry certifications (four examinations): Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM – CPIM1&CPIM2 APICS), Certification in Logistics, Transportation, and Distribution (CLTD -APICS), & Certified Six Sigma Green Belt (CSSGB – ASQ) exams.
