Course Information

Wayne State University, in cooperation with AIAG, offers our eleventh annual non-degree certificate program designed to provide an in-depth understanding of supply chain topics and issues in the context of the global automotive industry.


As vehicle industry supply chain issues are particularly focused on purchasing and supplier development, risk management, inbound logistics, after-market parts management, and a unique kind of outbound vehicle transportation, participants will explore a broad range of related topics, including: SCM strategy, SCM finance, forecasting, negotiations, procurement strategy, supplier development, risk management, production operations, quality management processes and Six Sigma, trade management, logistics and transportation management, and more. 


Overall, this hybrid program consists of 23 sessions, with separate winter and fall terms, and various break weeks throughout the year to allow for travel and other personal needs. Led by both industry and academic faculty, individual sessions take place on Thursdays, from 3:30 - 7:00 p.m., and can be attended either in-person at AIAG Headquarters in Southfield, Michigan, or virtually, via Zoom. 


The start date for our 2024 program will be Thursday, February 22, 2024, with 12 sessions scheduled between February 22 and May 9, followed by a summer break. Sessions will then resume on Thursday, September 5, 2024, and the program will conclude on Thursday, December 5, 2024.
