Programme Structure

During the second year, you proceed with textile management but this time specialise in management of the supply chain. Central topics this year are management of production and logistics, prognostics, and risk management.

The courses have a strong basis in current research in textile management with a focus on sustainability in the textile value chain, as well as research in adjoining subjects such as business administration and industrial economics at the University of Borås.

Several courses are about controlling one specific part of the value chain or how the different parts in the chain are linked and affect each other.
