M.S. in Integrated Supply Chain Management program renews credential transfer agreements

Spring campus

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Master of Science in Integrated Supply Chain Management program has renewed agreements on accepting professional credits transfers from two industry leaders in supply chain management certifications. The agreements affirm the quality of these certifications and allow another avenue for students to join UW-Platteville’s online master’s program.

One of the renewed agreements pertains to the Institute for Supply Management. Successful completion of the Certified Professional in Supply Management (CPSM) or Certified Purchasing Manager (CPM) certificates will equate to the waiver of BUSADMIN 6100 Supply Chain Management course in the M.S. in Integrated Supply Chain Management program.

The other renewed agreement is for the completion of any of three Association for Supply Chain Management (ASCM): Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM); Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP); and Certified Logistics, Transportation, and Distribution (CLTD). Earning these certificates will also equate to the waiver of the BUSADMIN 6100 course.

“Given the fast pace of change in the world’s supply chain environment, these association agreements signal an ongoing commitment to flexibility and current content in our graduate supply chain management curriculum,” said M.S. in Integrated Supply Chain Management Program Coordinator Bill Haskins. “Such credit-for-credentials agreements will help better position our graduate students to lead in all segments of the supply chain management domain.”

The renewed agreements will extend for another three years. Students must meet all UW-Platteville admission requirements to take advantage of these opportunities.

UW-Platteville maintains several similar degree-driven transfer agreements with institutions nationwide. To learn more about the ten master’s degrees offered entirely online through UW-Platteville, visit Go.UWPlatt.edu/Graduate, call 800-362-5460 or email disted@uwplatt.edu.
