College of Lake County Launches New Supply Chain Management Program

Responding to the needs of area residents and employers, the College of Lake County has launched an associate degree and two certificate programs in supply chain management.

The field involves the movement and storage of raw materials, inventory and finished goods from supplier to customer, which may be other businesses or consumers.

Funded by a grant from Grainger, a business-to-business distributor of products used to maintain, repair and operate facilities, the program consists of a 60-hour A.A.S. degree in supply chain management and two certificates: Introduction to Supply Chain Management (15 credits) and Advanced Supply Chain Management (30 credits).

The new offerings are designed to give students a choice of programs that best fit their goals and background, whether they have no college experience or have earned a bachelor's degree. Jobs include positions in procurement, inventory management, warehousing, distribution, logistics and transportation.

"CLC is grateful for the support of Grainger, who helped build a program where we both saw a need," said Jeffrey Stomper, CLC's interim assistant vice president of Educational Affairs and dean of the Business and Social Sciences division. "The company has been a longtime partner of CLC, and their collaboration with the college is another example of how Grainger is passionate about education, workforce development and creating positive change and new opportunities in the community."
