Highlights

Successful supply chain management requires a team approach. Similarly, the business environment itself involves chains of operations with multiple people across borders. With a typical cohort of students on each course representing more than 15 different nationalities, students can explore different perspectives and assimilate social models. This increases multicultural awareness greatly enhances negotiation skills, as well as promotes and develops a truly international profile. Students learn to reconcile cultural differences while taking into account real-life working conditions, a highly beneficial melting pot every student.

Consulting opportunities, offered year-round with the Supply Chain Centre of Research and partnering companies, empower students to become invaluable assets. Applying the latest methodologies fosters a comprehensive understanding and boosts expertise in innovative topics. This experience also enhances decision-making skills, enabling students to deliver practical solutions and present recommendations to an industry professional jury. Partnering with international leaders like LVMH, Sonepar, Lectra, C-Discount, or Airbus, participants tackle consultant tasks in a multicultural environment, honing their decision-making abilities and applying supply chain management tools and methods in diverse scenarios, including sustainability.

This 6-month immersive experience is designed to be a pivotal starting point for students, allowing them to seamlessly integrate the knowledge gained into both their work and study in the field of supply chain management. It has 3 main objectives:

  • Apply new supply chain methodologies in a complex and international environment, immerse in real-world challenges and gain valuable work experience.
  • Present and justify proposals in front of a professional panel, earning credits required for the ongoing courses.
  • Gain exposure to an international environment, and complete an internship in English to seamlessly transition into the global professional arena.

The ISLI forum was created in 1990 to let professionals, researchers and students share the latest developments in supply chain management across industries. This year, more than 300 supply chain leaders came to share their experience at the forum. Providing the opportunity for factual, innovative knowledge sharing about the industry’s future, these events - open windows into the future - help in the development and environmental change of supply chains. The forum also draws on the CESIT – KEDGE dedicated Research Centre's – wealth of knowledge. Within this cutting-edge centre, professors collaborate with industry, communities, and academia to innovate concepts, methods, and tools for supply chain organisation and transformation.

Skills developed

The global logistics chain strategically generates substantial value, extending beyond singular connections to permeate the entire chain from suppliers to end customers. This has become a pivotal factor in enhancing competitiveness in today's dynamic global economic landscape. KEDGE ISLI students master comprehensive courses, learning effective supply chain management from production to distribution and transportation & warehousing. Carefully designed modules equip them with essential information for successful entry into the sector.

Streamlining and enhancing integration in global supply chain management are essential requirements for success. Unifying a company, its partners, and the working environment onto a single path, this approach combines interdepartmental services to meet specific global needs. In the ISLI postgraduate courses, these strategies are crucial for overall supply chain efficiency. Understanding and mastering these principles address the overarching need for professionals who can navigate global complexities, ensuring graduates are well-equipped for both study and work in this dynamic field.

The course pioneers a fresh approach to the field, broadening the scope of value creation across the global chain—from suppliers to end customers—for a competitive edge. Influencing factors encompass suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, customers, and societal trends. These factors encompass emerging markets, shorter product life cycles, evolving consumer expectations, sustainable development, big data, drone technology, and more. Implementing an effective innovative strategy requires supply chain management built on knowledge sharing, transparency, and mutual trust. A heightened focus on flexibility streamlines responses to customer demands, now an integral aspect of the overall thinking process.

What is Global Supply Chain Management?

Global supply chain management coordinates the international movement of goods from manufacturers to consumers. It involves various stages, starting with raw materials to manufacturers, transportation to warehouses, and transfer to wholesalers and retailers. Today's focus in global supply chain management includes minimizing environmental impact and optimizing costs. Companies integrate sustainable practices, aiming to balance social and environmental responsibility with economic cost management.

In the contemporary business landscape, effective global supply chain management is crucial for the success of enterprises. The modern world relies on smooth cross-border movement of materials, making it vital for sustaining the global economy. Any disruption in shipping, transportation, information management, or security can have significant repercussions.

With a meticulously designed curriculum, the MSc ISLI stands as an ideal postgraduate degree, offering relevant modules and analytical modeling. Graduates gain essential skills and academic support, and follow a programme focused on innovative methodologies, allowing them to initiate, contribute to, and lead sustainable global supply chain projects.
