Introducing Operations and Supply Chain Management Certificate Program


Tombolo has launched a new certificate program in operations and supply chain management. Designed with working professionals in mind, this new program can be completed within 6 months. Take a close look on how this certificate can give professionals the edge to catapult them to a new realm in their career.

  • Complete certificate within 6 months. Compacted classes mean you save time and money.
  • Develop competences in your field through the help of carefully developed and sequenced classes.
  • Sign up for one program and take classes until completed (as opposed to signing up for each individual class).
  • Pass each course and earn a non-credit certificate of completion for the program.

The Operations and Supply Chain Management certificate program is composed of four courses covering Operations Strategy, Products/Capacity, Manufacturing/Service Processes, Supply Chain Processes, and Supply & Demand Planning/Control. There’s a lot to learn, but the intense regimen makes it possible for students to quickly grasp how the industry works and how different theories and skills can be applied to add significant value to how businesses run and manage the chain of supplies.

“Supply chain management enables firms to strategically redefine their relationships with government, reduce uncertainty, and promote goal-oriented collaboration. The program at Tombolo prepares professionals for the principles and practices to meet organizational goals, including the reduction of their environmental footprint.” -Samuel Otoo, instructor at Tombolo Institute

Problem-solving activities, applied-learning projects, and critical thinking exercises all play a major role in educating students to take on this fast-paced and exciting career. When every supply chain has its own challenges and benefits, applying the theories can take some practice.

This program is offered twice a year, starting each spring and fall.
