Join us for Supply Chain Financial Management

June | 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Lehigh University

This program is designed for mid-level working professionals and is available for open enrollment. It can also be applied to our Supply Chain Management Certificate Program.  

Program Overview

For supply chain management to mature as a discipline, we must appreciate the language of finance, including its terms, concepts, tools and techniques. We must also understand how to apply financial tools and techniques to support better decision making and risk management. And, we must demonstrate the value that supply chain managers create by showing how supply chain initiatives affect a company’s most important financial indicators. Supply chain financial management supports the maturing of the supply chain discipline.

It is time for supply chain professionals to become comfortable with speaking and applying a language that is spoken at the highest echelons of governments, non-profit organizations and corporations. Without a doubt, the field of finance has much to offer supply chain professionals. This program will help supply chain professionals continue to develop as professionals as they learn how to apply financial tools, concepts and techniques.
