DescriptionYou will acquire an understanding of the core concepts, theories and models for strategically designing, managing and controlling global supply chains. This will give you an overview and detailed knowledge of the processes behind the flow of goods, materials, information or finances, from the moment a customer order triggers the chain of suppliers and until the product reaches end-users. Your knowledge of concepts, theories and models enables you to analyse data and evaluate the effect of changes in a given supply chain. Combining the knowledge and skills you build up, allows you to effectively integrate procurement, production, distribution and logistical processes in a company. The ability to match demand and supply and to have the right product at the right time in the right place is central to the concentration, and essential for the profitability of a company.
You will learn to plan and optimsize supply chain operations, but also get the competencies of developing global supply networks and supplier relations. Through this you will be able to influence decisions on both the operational and the strategic level of business management.
