SCM Finance Academy
Build the financial acumen you need to succeed in supply chain
The SCM Finance Academy is an 8-week program designed to provide managers, directors, and high-potential employees the financial foundation they need to interpret results and make decisions that have an impact across the supply chain.
This first-of-its-kind program draws upon the industry-leading supply chain curriculum in the Haslam College of Business as well as learning that emerges from close relationships with peers and faculty.
- Taught in an asynchronous and synchronous online format, the program allows students to work through course material independently and synthesize key takeaways live with expert faculty support
- Students select either their own or a publicly traded company to use during the program, enabling them to learn about financial positions and understand how their decisions impact results.
- The course culminates with a formal assessment, and participants are awarded CEUs and UT Certification upon completion.
