IIT Bombay - Certificate Programme in Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Management

The supply chain management field continues to evolve from basic contract management with suppliers and distributors to a more proactive, strategic process with business partners and suppliers to create shareholder value. With many the clerical tasks now automated, the purchasing professional is free to work strategically with management. The competitiveness of companies is more and more dependent on the competitiveness of the whole supply chain. Managers of today must understand and lead their companies as a whole, and understand and affect the network they operate in. As company networks are becoming global, managers, too, have to operate internationally.


The program aims to provide you with foundational and advanced knowledge on how to tackle, resolve, and manage a myriad of complex problems and issues that confront supply chain managers. These complex problems and issues arise within the boundaries of an organization as well as across organizations, cutting across traditional domains of sourcing, manufacturing and logistics.
