Master Supply Chain and Purchasing Management

Supply chain and purchasing management is integral to the success of international businesses that are striving for competitive advantages at a global level. The key to this success is having the right skills and knowledge in order to plan and execute strategies that boost revenues and reduce costs through ideas and innovation.
