Operations Management and Information Systems department - MOSI 

These disciplines are all related to Supply Chain Management in the broadest sense. Professors in the MOSI Department provide theoretical and practical training designed to give students specific knowledge of Purchasing, Supply Chain, Quality, Information Systems, Maritime and Air Transport, as well as a global and cross-disciplinary vision of Supply Chain Management. 

Teaching commitment 

The educational project of the MOSI department 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.
