KEDGE’s International Purchasing and Innovation Management (MAI) programme is an international reference in this field. Each year, hundreds of students graduate from the MAI in order to take up important roles within the Purchasing departments of major companies. To bring this unique community together, KEDGE Alumni and the MAI Alumni Association are organising a conference on KEDGE’s Paris campus at 7 pm on Thursday 3 May which puts the spotlight on women working in the purchasing field.
