A complete training in which you will learn the economic part of the management of a company in modules such as ‘Financial and Economic Management’, ‘Strategy and Globalisation’ or ‘International Marketing’. But you will also learn non-financial aspects that are necessary to lead any project in ‘Entrepreneurship and Innovation’ or ‘Leadership and Human Resources Management’.
Once you have completed this first part of the programme, you will begin the specialisation modules of the MBA.
Become an e-Supply Chain management specialist
You will specialise in the specific modules of the MBA in e-Supply Chain Management, where you will acquire fundamental knowledge for your professional development.
You will learn about the latest technological advances in logistics and their main uses in the module ‘New Technologies and SCM Optimisation’. You will also learn the best standard practices that a company should take into account in the supply chain in ‘Quality, Productivity and Operations’.
You will understand the end-to-end supply chain. In ‘Purchasing and Procurement Strategy in the SCM’, you will learn about the stock procurement process that companies go through; and in ‘Distribution, Storage, Handling, Transport and Reverse Logistics’, you will analyse the management of those same stocks.
Use case studies to obtain a realistic picture of business situations
Each module of the MBA in International e-Supply Chain has a case study that students work on. The case studies consist of in-depth analysis of real-world situations, through which students gain a very realistic view of business situations.
This methodology makes students develop critical thinking and use all the skills learned during the module. As students present the findings to their peers, the case studies also allow them to initiate a reflective discussion among themselves.
In this way, students learn to justify the decision-making process in supply chain issues. By being present in all modules, students of this MBA get a clear picture of the working methods used today in the different fields covered in the programme.
