The world of global commerce is full of opportunities for those prepared to become business leaders. The PBD in International Supply Chain Management will help you get there. Specifically, you’ll learn about importing and exporting, market research to develop market entry strategies, supply chain management, managing in international environments, legal and financial aspects of international trade business. Also, you’ll learn industry-relevant job skills and preparatory knowledge to attain industry certifications (APICS – CPIM, Lean Six Sigma, FITT-CITP). These certifications are internationally recognized and should introduce you to additional employment opportunities.
All students enrolled in the PBD International Supply Chain Management will be automatically enrolled in the FITT Diploma program and receive an industry-recognized FITT Diploma in International Trade upon completion of all requirements. Students will pay an additional mandatory fee of $425 (plus applicable taxes) to cover FITT eBooks, credit transfer and examination fees. Upon successful completion of the PBD in the International Supply Chain Management program, students must mail a copy of their official transcript to FITT and pass the two FITT assessments selected by Douglas College. Once students complete a year of work experience in international trade, they may apply for the Certified International Trade Professional (CITP) designation.
