SCMPs are recognized as strategic supply chain management professionals who help companies achieve a competitive edge. Employers benefit from the SCMP’s innovative leadership and their unique and distinctive competencies.

With procurement, operations, logistics and all areas of supply chain management playing an increasingly important role, more organizations are seeking skilled professionals to do the job. Here’s how becoming an SCMP will benefit your career.

Advancement: Employers are commonly asking for the SCMP accreditation or enrollment in the SCMP Designation Program when hiring for supply chain management roles.

Earning Power: SCMPs earn on average 12% or more annually than their counterparts without the designation, according to the SCMA/Purchasing b2b/MM&D/Canadian Shipper Annual Survey of the Canadian Supply Chain Professional.

Global Perspective: With reciprocal designation agreements with the two largest SCM associations in the world—CIPS in the U.K. and ISM in the U.S.—SCMPs are recognized as competent leaders in today’s modern global supply chains.

Satisfaction: After completing a rigorous program, SCMPs achieve supply chain management’s most respected credential and are easily able to differentiate themselves from others in the field.
