This Master’s programme will train you to understand, analyse and manage the processes behind supply chains. You will graduate with a broad perspective, and the knowledge and knowhow necessary to work across boundaries, in different types of organisations, helping them make fundamental improvements to their operations.
The need to organise and manage the global exchange of goods, services and information between companies and organisations is growing at a rapid pace. The content of these exchanges is becoming increasingly technical and more complex, making the current moment a golden opportunity for engineers to take up managerial positions in everything from marketing, logistics and purchasing, to transportation and production.
This programme focuses on the design, management and improvement of supply chain management strategies. It is a multidisciplinary programme, built on several scientific fields. Supply chain management is a vital process for companies looking to improve their competitiveness, and this programme will help you develop your skills in purchasing, logistics, marketing, transport and general management, to help organisations reach their full potential.
You will learn not only to understand current best practices and trends but also to identify and analyse the complex changes that supply networks are continuously undergoing. Problem-based learning, including case studies and problem-solving with quantitative and qualitative models, will form an important aspect of the education. With advanced theoretical knowledge and comprehensive practical experience of related concepts, you will learn how to improve the ways in which companies identify their needs to best produce and deliver products and services to their customers.
The fundamental areas of the programme look at supply chain management, purchasing and logistics, while a wide range of elective courses cover topics including production, transportation, lean management, marketing and manufacturing.
