Choose Your Way: Business Logistics from A-Z

when 6 August 2012 - 10 August 2012
duration 1 week
credits 2 EC
fee EUR 590

This course briefly introduces the main theoretical background needed for professional supply chain management. It then provides a transfer of this theory into a practical approach of business situations, to strengthen the participants’ personal international competences.

The business world is in great and growing demand for managers who do not only have knowledge and experiences in their own field or subject, but also understand the logistical processes that make things actually work. Students will focus on topics like purchasing, warehouse and distribution management, to take that to a higher level in business process integration and logistic strategy.

In this very intensive course students are promised hard work and real-time experiences. In international teams they focus on the most important aspects of the supply chain, and will experience how their decisions influence the outcome of the primary process.

Drs. Inez Meurs

Target group

The programme is especially designed for students with an interest in logistical processes but not necessarily a strong (study) background in this field. The course has a strong practical focus. Participants must be open to experiencing their own strong and weak points in making decisions and being responsible for the implications of those decisions.

Course aim

The aim of this course is to offer some theory and most of the practical tools and techniques to deal with all sorts of logistical challenges. This course offers participants the opportunity to experience what it means to be responsible for decisions and what these decisions imply for a company in real-life situations.
