This podcast is for young graduates to help them form a career in supply chain.
As you may be aware that supply chains across India need skilled and qualified manpower to manage its operations. This demand is coming from eCommerce companies, multinational corporations and business houses. I have personally witnessed a steep growth in demand for supply chain professionals both at entry and mid-management levels over the last 5 years. Several predictions points out to the fact that supply chain will be one of the leading domains that will offer significant opportunities to young graduates for the next few decades or so.
The most frequent question I get from aspiring students is “Am I eligible to pursue a supply chain program?”. Any graduate or diploma candidates with commerce or science or business or engineering or vocational qualifications can pursue the supply chain certification from APICS, USA. The name of this supply chain certification is Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM). CPIM is one of the world’s oldest supply chain certification launched way back in 1973 and is considered as the gold standard within supply chain community.
Pursuing CPIM not only helps the young graduates to master the body of knowledge but also differentiates them from the rest of graduates as they have an internally recognised certification. CPIM is a solid strategy to form a strong foundation for your career in supply chain. To learn more about the CPIM program structure, please listen to our podcast on “All About CPIM”.
