Areas of Focus
Our professional course offerings revolve around our two below series.
Our traditional professional education certificate programs and short courses are typically designed for mid-career supply chain professionals. Participants' titles that enroll in the courses range from senior analyst through director. The included courses typically range from two to four-days and have an in-depth approach to a specific topic or theme. Course content typically focuses on management decision-making techniques, analytical techniques, and domain-specific topics appropriate for management. Knowledge transfer takes place through a number of mechanisms including case studies, group projects, computer simulations, field trips, and lectures.
The public course schedule is generally open-enrollment, so all are invited to participate. Students come from all industry segments and from six continents. Open enrollment courses typically take place on Georgia Tech campus’ in Atlanta, Savannah, and Panama City, Panama. All public course schedule courses are also available as custom courses for companies wanting to have tailored, private programs (or hybrid courses that are tailored to an anchor company and then also opened up to a wider audience). The custom courses can be offered nearly anywhere with proper facilities.
The program currently consists of seven different series/certificate programs comprised of 28 courses grouped into specific subject areas. A large percentage of students seek certificate completion; however, students are not required to enroll in entire certificate programs. All courses provide continuing education units (CEU’s), certificates, and formal registry in the Georgia Tech student records system.
Designed primarily for entry-level and supervisory level positions in supply chain management. The courses are also appropriate for executives new to supply chain or a specific supply chain domain, veterans seeking entry into commercial opportunities, and individuals re-entering the job market and seeking a refresher on supply chain topics.
These courses are offered in a self-paced online format and in a hybrid format. The hybrid format requires students to meet at intervals on the Georgia Tech Savannah Campus. At this time, there are no hybrid sessions scheduled. (See Georgia Tech Professional Education registration website for specific dates/times updates).
These certificates are designed for those who want a solid understanding of supply chain fundamentals and logistics fundamentals who may be new to certain supply chain domains. The goal of the program is to support workforce readiness and upward mobility for entry-level and supervisory level associates.
