Students in the advanced diploma Business Administration – Supply Chain and Operations Management program will be prepared to perform marketing forecasting, demand management, production planning, and other functions, in careers that include logistics, transportation, warehousing, exporting, planning and forecasting. The supply chain and operations management courses in this program will allow graduates to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and abilities related to both business in general, and supply chain jobs in particular.

This learning experience will enable graduates to demonstrate:

  • Analysis of the impact of an organization's supply chain initiatives on its human resources management strategies, policies, and practices.
  • Compliance of an organization with relevant national and internal laws, regulations, safety requirements, and professional standards.
  • Application of the knowledge of the functional components in the integrated supply chain including logistics, purchasing, distribution, transportation, and warehousing.
  • Use of supply chain tools and resources, in order to comply with the requirements of supply chain management.
  • Interpretation of relevant financial documents and assessment of financial strategies that support an organization's supply chain.

Your Field Education Options

Work Experience (Co-op and Internship)

This program requires the successful completion of two semesters of work experience to graduate. This work experience is either co-op (paid) or internship (unpaid). Either one will give you the practical experience employers value.

George Brown works with employers and industry partners to identify potential work experience opportunities. Students are also strongly encouraged to pursue self-directed industry work experience opportunities they believe will provide the learning experiences they value and meet the learning outcomes of the program. This valuable work experience can in turn be added to your resumé.

In addition to on-the-job work experience, George Brown College endeavours to provide field education opportunities with real-world challenges and clients.
