The Operations Management and Information Systems Academic Department (MOSI) at Kedge Business School is made up of professors from disciplines including procurement management, supply chain management, quality management, and information systems management.
These disciplines all fall under the umbrella of Supply Chain Management. Professors from the MOSI department provide theoretical and practical teaching designed to provide students with specific knowledge in the fields of purchasing, supply chain, quality and management of Information Systems, as well as giving them global and cross-disciplinary insight into Supply Chain Management.
The MOSI department’s teaching project is based on five main pillars:
- Interactive teaching, learning by doing and transferring knowledge;
- An international and prospective approach to the concepts taught;
- The correct balance between theoretical and practical learning;
- The correct balance between classes and work outside the classroom;
- The correct balance between individual and group work.
Professors from the MOSI department mainly teach the following programmes:
- The master’s in International Purchasing (MAI), ranked top course in purchasing by professionals and the media;
- The master’s in Supply Chain Management - ISLI (Institute for Supply Chain Excellence), a leading course launched in 1984 by BEM. It is the oldest course in Logistics and Global Supply Chain Management in Europe;
- The master’s in Quality Management - ISMQ, a first-rate course in the field;
- The Grande Ecole Programme - ESC (Ecole Supérieure de Commerce);
- The Kedge Bachelor higher-education programmes - EBP International;
Most of the professors from the MOSI department are part of Kedge Business School’s Supply Chain Management Centre of Excellence, where they work together on research. Some research is also conducted with the Wine & Spirits and Creative Industries & Culture Centres of Expertise and the Centre of Excellence in CSR. Thanks to the Information Systems Management professors’ contribution to the centre’s European and international success, Kedge Business School is part of the ERCIS (European Research Center for Information Systems) network (http://ercis.com/).
