The Supply Chain Management post-graduate certificate is a 10-month program that provides hands-on education in the field of supply chain management. The program will provide students with the tools necessary to strategize solutions to complex problems and situations and will develop their competence in the area of planning, sourcing, producing and delivery products and services. The program will prepare students with an existing bachelor's degree in business or engineering to understand and work in the supply chain management industry in Saskatchewan and Canadian public and private enterprise. Students will develop skills and knowledge in fields of procurement, negotiations, leadership, logistics, risk management and information systems.
You will apply theory to real-world scenarios in business situations, case studies, group projects and role playing exercises. You will be provided with a mentorship opportunity while completing your capstone project.
Graduates from the Supply Chain Management post-graduate certificate may qualify for advanced standing toward the Supply Chain Management Association designation.

The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake.
Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year.
Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.
See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and alumni, Saskatchewan Polytechnic gives away more than $2 million in student awards during the academic year.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers student awards for every certificate and diploma program at every campus. Not all student awards are based on marks - some are based on financial need or things like community or volunteer involvement.
