The certificate program, consisting of four courses, provides learners relevant business and planning challenges as well as analytics tools and techniques to address them. Lecturers from Georgia Tech and ORTEC will cover software tools and practical methods to conduct analytics and optimization to meeting supply chain management needs.
“It is a great honor to partner with Georgia Tech to provide business professionals the very best in supply chain analytics education,” said Daphne de Poot, a program course lecturer and an ORTEC senior data scientist. “The program offers hands-on experience using data in the supply chain landscape.
