Moraine Valley Community College is offering a new Advanced Supply Chain Management certificate beginning this fall.

This certificate requires 41 credit hours and is designed to provide the skills of managing solutions and overseeing the flow of goods, data and finances as a product or service moves from the point of origin to its final destination. Students will learn about core technology skills, business/industry content, domestic and global issues in suppliers and customer relations, value-added product differentiation and cost management as well as professional skills required to succeed within this business. Students looking to work in a supply chain-related position or seeking career advancement should consider pursuing this certificate.

The Intro to Supply Chain Management certificate was significantly revised and offers seven courses (21 credit hours) that introduce students to supply chain management. Students in this program will build a base for entry-level and trainee positions or, if employed in the industry, gain enhanced professional knowledge and career advancement potential.

A complete list of credit and noncredit classes can be found in the fall 2020 class schedule online. Tuition is $131 per credit hour plus fees and books. Registration is ongoing. The college shortened its fall semester from 17 to 16 weeks with most courses taking place online starting Aug. 24. Hybrid classes, those that have some in-person and some online instruction, begin Aug. 10. New students can get started remotely with step-by-step instructions online.
