The programme provides a global view about the supply chain within different industries
The school environment is very international thanks to the diverse nationalities between teachers and students. This multicultural ambiance makes the difference in our personal and professional lives because it allows us to discover the particularities of each culture in our daily life and it helps us to expand our network. The programme provides a global view about the supply chain within different industries and how us as future managers, can help the companies to optimize, operate and coordinate the processes of the supply chain. Also, there are two specialization tracks that each student can choose (logistic and purchasing) in the second semester, that lends us to deeply understand one part of the whole chain and makes us to be specialist in the area which we want to work in the future.
