Our vision is to produce current and future leaders in who want to make a positive impact on the world in the areas of supply chain management and procurement. To achieve that we have created a truly global, world-class programme of exceptional quality, which aims to be the leader in its area worldwide.
he MITx MicroMasters® Program in SCM from MIT CTL consists of five online courses that cover the fundamentals of supply chain management. These asynchronous online courses delivered by MIT CTL instructors will be augmented by synchronous instruction taught by professors at SKEMA.
The SKEMA MSc programme is comprised of four courses over the academic year: sustainability, new technologies (blockchain, big data, AI), market volatility, and soft skills (leadership, negotiation, communication). Skema has also successfully recruited 21 international C-Level industry experts who teach within the program and share their experiences with the class.
he programme uses new teaching approaches to improve especially the soft skills of our students to become future leaders. One of such courses is delivered by an acting training company that also teaches Executives at large international corporations and at Harvard, Insead and LBS.
World's leading supply chain experts as lecturers
The foundation of a world-leading programme is exceptional teachers. To create future leaders, we need today's successful leaders as their teachers. This is why our programme probably has the most successful (industry) experts compared with all other master programmes in our area in the world.
Do you know of any supply chain management or procurement programme...
where the negotiation and leadership class is taught by an FBI director?
where a class in self-improvement for leaders is taught by one of the leading neuroscience experts of the world (named a Top 40 Professor in the world)?
where a procurement class is taught by a head of procurement of a huge global corporation with a revenue of more than 10 billion dollars?
where a supply chain consulting class is taught by a managing director of one of the leading consultancies in the world?
Or where a supply chain finance class is taught by a managing director of a bank?
This is our programme. Our goal is to build the leading programme by having the best, most experienced and successful leaders of today to teach the leading people of tomorrow.
