  • Programme designed with a progressive shift from theory to practice.

  • Active learning project work: students are immersed in companies in order to deal with real life supply chains and purchasing issues.

  • Students make connections with academic researchers and entrepreneurs throughout the year.

  • Curriculum revised every year in consultation with key managers in the related areas.



What ​supply and purchasing professionals have to say about the MSc

 
Christophe Ysaebaert, global sourcing manager, Dow Corning
"Dow Corning Europe started its mutually beneficial relationship with SKEMA more than 10 years ago.
 
Dow Corning regularly visits SKEMA to share its procurement expertise with students in the MS and MSc Supply Chain Management & Purchasing programmes.
 
In return, Dow Corning selects and hires SKEMA's best candidates for procurement internships at one of its three main manufacturing sites in Europe (Belgium, UK and Germany).
 
The quality and the value of students as well as the access to the academic world in the field of purchasing have made this relationship very valuable for Dow Corning over these past years. We are confident this collaboration will continue to be fruitful as we move forward."
 
 
 
Olivier Quindos, site sourcing director, Alstom Transport
"We have been partners with SKEMA for several years now. Every year we take on students either through internship or apprenticeship programmes. We recruit them either for sourcing activities or supply chain activities.
 
The fact that all SKEMA's students have international backgrounds is a plus as we can easily integrate them on off-shore projects we manage from our Petite-Forêt site.

The students coming from SKEMA are rapidly autonomous and have at their disposal a wide range of tools and methodology acquired through their academic course which help them to be quickly efficient."
