Postgraduate course in Total Supply Chain Management
The crisis sparked by the Covid-19 pandemic has revealed the key role supply chains play in the framework of a company’s corporate strategy, demonstrating that a good part of their robustness relies on the quality of the mechanisms guaranteeing the provision of products or services, whether in normal conditions or under exceptional circumstances.
Understood to be the quantitative and qualitative evolution of traditional logistic processes, supply chain management is also fast becoming one of the most in-demand skills on the labour market.
This postgraduate course aims to meet the needs of all those professionals or students in the operations sector that aim to specialise in supply chain management, from demand planning to the relations with the end customer, also encompassing provisioning, transport and storage.
Furthermore, the course has also been developed with the aim to revise and update knowledge on the supply chain field, which in recent years has been directly affected by important changes such as digitalisation, omnichannel strategy, sustainability and automation.
