About the Program

Note: New students are no longer being accepted into this certificate for Academic Year 2022-2023. Please contact Rob Lazzaro (sg77ybbm@drexel.edu) and Rick Grandrino (rag28@drexel.edu) for additional information.

The courses in this certificate focus on teaching students to understand, analyze, and enhance the performance of complex and dynamic global supply chains. The certificate is structured with three quantitative courses: EGMT 571, EGMT 572, and EGMT 573 that will provide students with mathematical and statistical tools to analyze and evaluate the supply chain.

The remaining three courses (SYSE 520, SYSE 522, and SYSE 690) allow students to understand the dynamic and complex nature of global supply chains from a systems engineering perspective. They also teach students to implement the quantitative tools learned during the first three courses to efficiently manage the supply chain. Students will evaluate and analyze diverse types of supply chains through case studies, and they will analyze and discuss the best practices in supply chains across the world.

All affiliated courses may be applied to the Master of Science in Systems Engineering and the Master of Science in Engineering Management.

Admission Requirements

Degree and GPA Requirement

A bachelor's degree in an engineering discipline from an ABET-accredited college or university is required. A bachelor’s degree in the sciences (physics, mathematics, computer science, etc.) may also be acceptable. An undergraduate degree earned abroad must be deemed equivalent to a US bachelor's degree. A minimum 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) for a bachelor’s degree as well as for any subsequent graduate-level work is required.

TOEFL Requirement

For students whose native language is not English and who do not hold a degree from a US institution, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required. TOEFL scores must be less than two years old to be considered. Minimum total score of 94 (internet-based). Official documents of this exam must be submitted directly to the Graduate Admissions Office. Unofficial photocopies will not be accepted.
