Supply Chain Management

Are you interested in purchasing, logistics, operations management and supply chain management? Are you analytically- and strategically-minded, and good with people and communications? Are you customer oriented and open to new ideas? Then the specialisation in Supply Chain Management could be right for you. The specialisation is part of the master's programme in International Business and is for students seeking a career managing supply chains for businesses and organisations.

You will gain the theoretical, practical and managerial skills to implement supply chain improvements that satisfy consumer demand and keep companies competitive. The programme also explores exciting concepts like the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 and the Maker Movement, which are challenging our ideas about lifestyle and consumption. In addition, the International Classroom concept of Maastricht University helps you to think, work, collaborate and network internationally.

      Maastricht University offers various opportunities to develop yourself outside of the tutorial rooms. Research Project Maastricht is an international consultancy project consisting of twelve UM-students. In January, the team will travel to China, to conduct company-specific research. China has a unique business culture, and last week the RPM team was trained by the Confucius Institute. The training focused on how to behave in Chinese business spheres, how to interpret a 'hmm I will think about it' in a business meeting, and do's and dont's during a business dinner. A perfect preparation for the research period in China!
