Supply chain requires business skills Those who work in the supply chain industry are required to have a diverse skill set, but according to industry experts, business skills are key.

Aston Business School, located in Birmingham, England, recently joined Electronic Components Supply Network to launch a Certificate in Management program that will aim to introduce students to new and improved business thinking, tools and techniques, according to Electronics Weekly.

“An organization’s success also relies on the management expertise to bring a product to market and lead a commercially successful business, which involves proficiency in the key management disciplines,” said Adam Fletcher, ECSN chairman. “Accordingly we saw the need for a comprehensive program for members: to create, develop and promote the executive management skills necessary to develop the successful industry leaders of the future."

Students interested in supply chain careers may be interested in a recent IndustryWeek article that provided tips on how to survive in the supply chain management industry. For example, the news source said agreeing on a baseline exchange rate of an initial price quote can have a beneficial impact on a company that is looking to expand its business internationally.
