Program Information

For those who don’t need an MBA degree but do need to update and broaden their professional skills, the graduate Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM) certificate provides the theories and practices to be successful in this critical area of modern business. Students take two core operations management (OP) courses, two elective OP courses, and two other elective courses, as approved by the program director for a total of 18 units. The two core OP courses cover key strategic, design, tactical, and execution management knowledge. The two elective OP courses allow students to tailor their certificate in GSCM. The two other elective courses allow students to broaden their knowledge either in GSCM or in related areas such as marketing, finance, technology, project management and international business. In addition to academic knowledge, students will have the opportunity to create a career plan to accomplish their goals with the support of academic, industry, and alumni advisors.

 All courses must be completed at Golden Gate University with a B average (3.00) or better. Enrollment as a degree candidate is not required. In some situations, prerequisite coursework may be required depending on the student’s background. Certificate students who are later admitted to degree programs may apply the credit earned in this certificate toward the degree requirements.
