Tempe, Ariz. – The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) and American Public University (APU) have established a cooperative relationship.

The relationship will see APU, which is a nationally and regionally accredited provider of online degree programs, promote ISM’s professional certifications. ISM will in turn also promote APU degree programs.

ISM certification holders may also be eligible to receive academic credits toward undergraduate and graduate programs at APU.

ISM says the move is a win-win arrangement for each organization, allowing both to leverage their interest in developing well-educated employees.

ISM offers the Certified Professional in Supply Management and Certified Professional in Supplier Diversity credentials. APU offers academic degrees and certificates in areas including transportation and logistics management, reverse logistics, management, hospitality management, and international relations, among others.
