TEAMWORK IN A MULTICULTURAL FRAMEWORK
The Supply Chain requires a team approach to management; and today’s business environment implies cross-border chains of operation.
Representing more than 20 different nationalities, students explore different perspectives and assimilate other social models. Enhanced multicultural awareness improves negotiating capabilities and develops a truly international profile. Students learn to reconcile cultural differences, always with an eye on real-world working conditions.

Management skills in tune with business reality
The Global Supply Chain is a vector for value creation, but the value created is no longer limited to a single link.
It now extends to the entire chain, from the supplier to the final customer, and is a key driver of competitiveness in today’s global business environment.
Global Supply Chain Management unifies the company, its partners and its environment down a single path, managing all involved services on a cross-departmental basis. The main objectives of Supply Chain Management translate into the optimisation of flows and the creation of customer services able to respond to specific requirements on a global scale.
A NEW APPROACH
Global Supply Chain Management is a new approach that extends value creation to all players across the global chain -from the supplier’s supplier to the end customer- in order to secure a competitive advantage. New emerging niche markets, shorter product life cycles, new and specific consumer expectations, sustainable development requirements, Big Data, drone technology... all these factors are impacting the modes of organisation of all actors across a global chain (suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, customers, society at large). By implementing an innovative strategy focused on maximising the overall outcome rather than local interests, Global Supply Chain Management enables higher performance.
To be effective, Supply Chain Management must be based on information sharing, transparency and mutual trust.
