Global Logistics Management & Professional Communication

Executive Professional Development for International Students

The School of Continuing Education supports MacEwan University’s international strategy of preparing students, faculty and staff to succeed in and contribute to a global society.

As global markets continue to grow and change, supply chain professionals are increasingly expected to develop new strategic business processes to manage the distribution of goods and services. Building on your supply chain knowledge and experience, the Global Logistics Management professional development certificate will enhance your ability to analyze international logistics systems and strategies in relation to organizational goals and relationships. You will explore strategic issues contributing to transportation, inventory, and location management decisions, as well as assess the need for globalization of an organization’s operations and how to benefit from government regulations related to international logistics and trade.

MacEwan University School of Continuing Education, in association with the Supply Chain Management Association of Alberta (SCMA AB), offers this advanced, comprehensive series of courses to meet the emerging needs of the global supply chain industry. Through case-based, problem-solving activities, you will have the opportunity to apply high level, analytical reasoning to examine different solutions to purchasing and transportation logistics, advanced sourcing, and integrated business systems in different domestic and international settings to achieve a stronger presence in the global marketplace. In addition, you will develop your verbal, written and non-verbal communication skills and confidence. Topics such as the Canadian workplace and intercultural communication will support the development of your English professional communication skills and enhance your performance and success.
