Supply Chain Management Association Ontario Pathway for Master of Management Students

Supply Chain Management Association Ontario (SCMAO) and University of Windsor have reached an agreement that will provide an efficient path for graduates of the university’s Master of Management, Logistics, and Supply Chain Management Program to pursue their Certified Supply Chain Management Professional (CSCMP) designation – at a faster and more cost-effective way.


Today’s global market demands skilled practitioners to support the management of complex supply chains.  SCMAO’s designation program meets this need and equips those seeking to launch or accelerate their career with the necessary skills to work at a management or executive level.


Many designation holders find having this designation helps them progress within their career and contribute at a strategic level within their company.


In 2008, during an employment transition, I noticed many senior-level procurement positions mandated the CSCMP designation. After researching the association, I discovered a few advantages that peaked my interest: access to cutting-edge techniques and networking opportunities, standardized modules Canada-wide, Continuing Professional Development programs, In-Residence Week and Designation Reciprocity in the US.  For these reasons I chose to pursue accreditation to open doors of opportunity and equip myself with transferable knowledge. I knew employers were looking for highly-skilled supply chain professionals to join their workforce and I wanted to be one of them.
