Conestoga Program Now Accredited by Canadian Supply Chain Sector

Waterloo - Conestoga’s Business Administration - Materials and Operations Management Program is now accredited by the Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council through its National Accreditation Program. The accreditation was granted in December 2010 and is effective for three years.

The accreditation program recognizes high quality programs that meet standards based on national and international best practices and principles. The standards include requirements for course/program needs assessment, design, development, delivery and student evaluation. Based on the assessment of an expert review panel of Canada’s industry leaders, the CSCSC has determined that Conestoga’s Materials and Operations Management program meets all of those standards, thus qualifying for accreditation.

"The accreditation from the Canadian Supply Chain Sector council is recognition of the high quality of education the students of our program receive,” said Professor Stephen Thomson, coordinator of the program. “In alignment with the CSCSC, our program strives to advance the supply chain management profession by attracting, nurturing, developing, and graduating exceptional students who will make a distincstive, substantial and lasting contribution to the industry and to their communities."

The Business Administration - Materials and Operations Management Program is a three-year, full-time diploma program that includes a co-op option for qualified students. In November 2010, the program also received recognition when it launched a Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification. Beginning in 2011, graduates will be awarded a Six Sigma Yellow Belt, which recognizes their skills and training in globally recognized process management methodologies that contribute to reduced waste and improved competitiveness.

The demand for qualified personnel to assume supply chain roles in Canada is expected to grow exponentially in the next three to five years, the combined result of growing business needs and workplace retirements.
