Columbus State Community College actively partners with employers and the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) to ensure our courses meet the training needs of today’s workforce.
Our Partnership with CSCMP
The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals is passionate about developing the careers of all supply chain management professionals – those already working in the field, those who would like to be, and the next generation of supply chain leaders: our students. That’s why CSCMP is excited to partner with Columbus State Community College and members of the consortium to create this vital career program. Increasing opportunities for supply chain management training is a win-win for everyone.
