Program Description

Increasing competition and the globalization of economies, alongside the growing need to improve competitiveness via efficient operations, raises new challenges and opportunities in how to organize and manage not only production but the entire supply chain.

In this context, the strategic and operations management of supply chains, understood as the integration of business processes from the final consumer, through the producers or service providers and even including primary suppliers, has developed as a promising tool to obtain competitive advantage in the market.

Good supply chain management enables the development of a link between the market, the distribution network, the production process and purchasing activity, in order to provide consumers with a high level of service at a reduced cost.

The Supply Chain Management program aims to produce managers who are capable of effectively analyzing and managing all the interactions and partnerships along the supply chain via a holistic approach.


Main Benefits

  • Provides an opportunity for personal and professional advancement in areas related to the holistic management of operations and supply chains and geared towards action in markets which are increasingly competitive and innovative; 
  • The Supply Chain Game offers participants a realistic experience as a group to apply the knowledge they acquire throughout the program.
