Wayne State University, in cooperation with AIAG, offers the seventh annual non-degree certificate program designed to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of supply chain topics and issues in the context of the global auto industry.

This certificate program is designed to provide participants with an indepth understanding of supply chain topics and issues in the context of the global vehicle industry. In addition to exploring new manufacturing and logistics technologies, participants will learn about a broad range of vehicle industry oriented supply chain management (SCM) topics: SCM strategy, SCM finance, forecasting, negotiations, procurement strategy, supplier development, corporate responsibility, cybersecurity, risk management, production operations, quality management processes and Six Sigma, trade management, logistics and transportation management.

Program faculty consists of a combination of supply chain academia and industry professionals. To provide the most comprehensive educational experience for all students, sessions include a mix of classroom discussions and lectures, a company related project and presentation, cases , tours, internet sessions, and simulations.

In its entirety, the program consists of 23 classroom sessions held over the course of a year, with separate winter and fall terms. Sessions are held at AIAG headquarters in Southfield on Thursday afternoons/evenings from 3:30 – 7:00 p.m., with break weeks throughout the year to allow for travel, personal time, etc.

The certificate program is intended for high potential candidates from a variety of vehicle industry OEM, Tier 1 and sub-tier, 3PL, service and carrier organizations. Typically, students perform manufacturing, marketing, engineering, purchasing, logistics or trade management functions, and may be relatively new to supply chain functions, or may have previously attended other supply chain programs not focused on vehicle industry issues.

The Vehicle Industry SCM Certificate Program is a joint offering from Mike Ilitch School of Business’ Supply Chain Program, and the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG). AIAG is the industry’s premier supply chain organization, with leading education programs covering a wide variety of supply chain and other industry subject areas.
The Mike Ilitch School of Business’ Supply Chain Program focuses on the vehicle industry and consists of tenure track faculty and a number of industry adjuncts. There are over 450 undergraduate supply chain majors and 160 MBA supply chain concentrators. Gartner Research recently ranked the WSU undergrad SCM program as one of the top 25 in the nation.
