Program description

Learn to apply machine learning and AI models to devise intelligent supply chain strategies.


In this programme, you’ll build a solid foundation in machine learning (ML) techniques and focus on the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) and ML in supply chain systems and processes.

As you advance through the programme, you’ll learn how to:

  • Make better supply chain decisions
  • Optimize logistics processes and inventory
  • Make better production plans
  • Improve existing forecasting methods

Supply chain practitioners, business analysts, supply chain consultants, and anyone seeking to advance a career in operations and supply chain management will find this programme useful.

Required background

No prior coding experience is required to successfully complete this programme. You should, however, have basic knowledge of mathematics. The course contains reading material and lectures on selected topics which bridge the gap between high school/senior school mathematics and the minimum level required to understand and use machine learning algorithms. Knowledge of basic linear algebra, calculus, probability and statistics will be helpful, and some experience with spreadsheets is recommended.



In case you missed it, the Q&A session with the faculty on October 29 is now available to watch. Learn more about the certificate,the curriculum, and learning outcomes directly from the faculty in this video.
