Wentworth Institute of Technology’s College of Professional and Continuing Education announced a new certificate program, 21st Century Demand and Supply Chain Management, to be offered in spring 2011. The program is designed for professionals seeking to advance their careers in global business management and expand their knowledge of demand management and supply chain management principles and leadership methods.

Developed in collaboration with ChainLink Research, a leading global research firm in the field of supply chain technology, the four-course program will teach students to make critical managerial decisions, design and manage business processes, and collaborate on implementing best practices for leveraging their supply chain as a competitive advantage. 

“The economy of the U.S. in general and New England in particular is in need of an innovative, educational program in the demand and supply chain field,” said Larry Carr, dean of Wentworth’s College of Professional and Continuing Education. “This new program goes beyond traditional offerings that focus more on logistics, instead focusing on essential front-end processes relating to marketing automation, demand management, and collaboration across multiple functional areas within the enterprise.”

“We are honored to partner with Wentworth as we collectively respond to the business community’s challenges,” said Ann Grackin, CEO of ChainLink Research. “Our research shows that the new generation of enterprise headquarters in the U.S. often thinks of outsourcing first due to the lack of in-house professional expertise. This program is designed to address the specific requirements of U.S. businesses that have clearly identified supply chain management among their top strategic priorities.”

Graduates of the program will be more strongly positioned for career opportunities in the demand management/marketing automation and supply chain management areas, including positions in sourcing and procurement, manufacturing planning, and overall supply chain executive management.

The following courses comprise the 21st Century Demand and Supply Chain Management certificate program: Supply Chain Dynamics; Demand Management for the 21st Century; Supply Chain Technology; and Sourcing, Procurement, and Supply Chain Risk Management.
