The Post Graduate Certificate Program in Supply Chain Management (Full time 1 year) offered by ISCM is of a broader nature which covers all the basic modules in management and Supply Chain management in specific. The faculty and teaching methodology are excellent. The case studies are of the highest standard, and have been prepared especially for this course. ISCM has been the best thing happened to me so far.
I strongly recommend this course for all those want to make SCM a career and feel that this course has a lot to offer apart from just mere learning about SCM.
