They collaborate to support talent development of current and emerging automotive industry professionals

AIAG is a member-driven not-for-profit association where automakers and suppliers across the global supply chain – along with partners from academia, government and other sectors – work collaboratively to develop and implement solutions to common industry pain points.

The organization delivers training and certification courses through its headquarters in Southfield, Michigan, and partners with universities and colleges to offer additional educational and professional development programs to serve the sector’s purchasing and supply chain networks.

Among its initiatives is the Global Automotive Purchasing and Supply Chain Network (GAPSCN), established through a collaboration with Wayne State University. The network supports students and professionals through educational programming designed to advance knowledge and experience in automotive supply chain management.

Conestoga is a leader in polytechnic education, delivering a comprehensive range of career-focused education, training and applied research programs to support workforce needs, prepare students for success, and contribute to stronger, more competitive businesses.

As part of the new partnership, Conestoga will explore the potential of joining the network

“AIAG is excited about the opportunity to partner with a world-class academic institution like Conestoga College to accelerate the development of the next generation of supply chain talent,” said J. Scot Sharland, CEO of AIAG. “Our collaboration will focus on automotive industry purchasing and supply chain management strategy and practice innovation that both anticipates and helps mitigate emerging global challenges and threats.”

Director of the Magna Centre for Supply Chain Excellence at Conestoga, Brian Watson stated, “Conestoga is committed to working with industry partners to develop career-ready graduates with the skills and knowledge to address real-world needs. The collaboration with AIAG will support the development and enhancement of supply chain management programming as we work together to support the competitiveness of Ontario’s automotive sector through education and applied research.”
