Seats are still available for the fifth annual WSU/AIAG Purchasing and Supply Chain Management Program – but they’re going fast! This year’s course, which consists of separate winter and fall classroom terms, officially kicks off on February 15, 2018.

Thank you to the growing number of participants who have already enrolled, and to the industry professionals who continue to support and champion this program!   

This particular course – designed to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of supply chain topics and issues in the context of the global automotive industry – is geared toward high potential candidates from OEM, Tiers 1 and 2, 3rd party logistics providers, and service and carrier organizations.

Sessions include a mix of classroom discussions and lectures, a company-related project and presentation, cases, tours, internet sessions, and simulations. Additionally, in a unique twist, academic faculty is joined by industry professionals in the classroom, offering insights from “hands-on” experiences in the automotive industry.

In its entirety, the program consists of 23 classroom meetings divided into two terms. Classes are held at AIAG headquarters in Southfield, Michigan, on Thursdays, beginning at 3:30 p.m., and concluding at 7:00 p.m. to better accommodate working students. Successful completion of the program entitles participants to receive a WSU/AIAG non-degree auto industry certificate in purchasing and supply chain management.
