Graduates receive advanced standing with Supply Chain Canada

Through a new agreement between Conestoga and Supply Chain Canada, graduates of the college’s Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) - International Business Management degree program will be granted advanced standing towards the Supply Chain Management Professional (SCMP) designation program.

Supply Chain Canada represents and serves more than 7,500 professionals across the country, as well as the broader supply chain community, through its education, advocacy and resource-development initiatives. The SCMP is considered Canada’s principal designation for those entering the field with candidates required to complete a rigorous learning program that includes numerous modules on supply chain management knowledge as well as interactive workshops related to high-level business skills.

“This is a good opportunity for our Supply Chain Management stream graduates who want to add another valuable credential to their resumes,” said Fatih Yegul, professor, International Business Management. “Our agreement with SCMA offers a head start to our graduates by giving them advanced standing for seven out of the 14 modules required for the SCMP designation.”

Fast-track pathways to pursue the SCMP designation are also available to Conestoga graduates through the post-graduate certificate in Supply Chain Management - Global as well as the Business Purchasing and Supply Chain and Operations Management advanced diploma programs. 

Conestoga’s Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) - International Business Management degree program prepares students to manage international business endeavours. The goal of the program is to provide graduates with the ability to bring people, processes, and technology together to achieve improved performance in domestic or international enterprises. Students have the option of specializing in Human Resource Management, Supply Chain Management, Marketing Management or continuing in the general stream.
