Supply chains are everywhere around us.
Everything that we wear, eat, touch, or use every day was part of a supply chain that transformed the raw materials from a certain location into a finished product that you are using now. Supply chains connect the world.
So, what is supply chain management?
Basically, it is the art and science of getting products from where they are made to where you the consumer want them to be.
While the term itself, supply chain management, was not used until the 1990s, the art and science of logistics goes back to ancient Roman times. It combines both theory and practice. You need to master the theoretical concepts but also to be able to use them in practical situations. So, supply chain management is a hybrid area that combines different disciplines, methods and ideas.
Supply chain management is the backbone of the global economy.
The need for professionals who can design, manage, and operate these complex global supply chains, continues to grow.
This is why we created the Next Level in Supply Chain Management program. In this program, you’ll learn the theoretical concepts but also, you’ll see how to apply them in practice in order to be able to use them immediately in your company.
The program is structured in five courses.
Supply Chain Management Fundamentals
The first part explores different forecasting techniques, develop inventory replenishment policies, and analyze transportation mode trade-offs. This business and management course introduces the primary methods and tools that you will encounter in your study and practice of supply chains.
Supply Chain Design
The second part explains how to develop and apply analytic tools, approaches, and techniques used in the design and operation of logistics systems and integrated supply chains. This is neither a purely theoretical nor a case study course, but rather an applied analytical course that addresses real problems found in practice.
Global Supply Chain Management
In this part you will learn how to deal with the complication and complexity of a supply chain that operates at a global level.
Risk and Resilience in Supply Chain Management
Here you will learn about risk management and how to build a firm that will be able to survive in the current disruptive environment. Understanding the dynamics and risks within supply chains, both large and small, is key to being a successful supply chain professional.
Supply Chain Technology
In this section you will learn about the technology, hardware and software necessary to operate and coordinate a supply chain at the global level. However, technology is constantly evolving and improving so that today’s technology is outdated within a few years or even months. Rather than focusing on a specific software system, this business and management course will focus on three aspects: fundamental concepts, core systems, and data analysis.
