Innovative entrepreneurship in the worldwide supply chain
The economy is becoming increasingly globalised and fierce competition means more and more production is outsourced to high-skill, low-cost areas. As a result, innovative supply chain management is often central to commercial survival. This exciting new programme has been developed to meet the growing demand for experts who understand both supply chain management issues and the role of innovation in business success.

Managing strategic change
A key feature of a good supply chain manager is the ability to understand all the links in the supply chain and to implement strategic change projects that will keep the supply chain competitive. One of the best ways to learn these skills is to experience global supply chains in action. This is why the programme will be taught in Venlo, an entrepreneurial city about 80km from Maastricht. You benefit from Maastricht University’s outstanding academic resources and expertise, while having the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice almost immediately at companies in the area. In addition, your master’s thesis should be based on a real-life innovation or an entrepreneurial project.

The master's programme in Global Supply Chain Management and Change is a 1-year, full-time programme taught entirely in English. Graduates will receive a master's degree in Global Supply Chain Management and Change.
