Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Supply Chain Management

Program Snapshot

Help The World Operate With Precision

In Canada, the supply chain is one of the most essential sectors of the economy involving more than 767,000 workers from a range of occupations and industries. Cape Breton University’s newly designed courses introduce all facets of supply chain management from a theoretical and practical perspective.

Organizations increasingly place emphasis on improving their operations and supply chain performance. This is because efficient management of transportation and logistics is vital to economic growth. That’s why the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Supply Chain Management program at CBU involves the management of materials, finances and information as they move from manufacturer to the end user.
