8th Annual Auto Industry Certificate in Purchasing and Supply Chain Management – 2021

THE PROGRAM
This certificate program is designed to provide participants with an in-depth 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.

FACULTY AND PROGRAM STRUCTURE
The delivery mode for the 2021 program will be Live Virtual from February – May 2021. Dependent on the status of the pandemic, Live Virtual and face-to-face sessions will be offered the second half of the year, beginning in September 2021. At this point – since networking is an important component of the class – participants located within 50 miles of AIAG’s headquarters in Southfield, Michigan are encouraged to attend in person, dependent on our ability to provide a safe classroom environment according to state regulations.

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 discussions and lectures, a company related project and presentation, cases, tours, internet sessions, and simulations.

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

PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS
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.
