The Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) program is a growing industry educational and certification program created to meet the rapidly changing needs of the supply chain management field.
The CSCP program takes a broad view of the field, extending beyond internal operations to encompass all the steps throughout the supply chain—from the supplier, through the company, to the end consumer—and provides you with the knowledge to effectively manage the integration of these activities to maximize a company's value chain.
