Our vision is to produce current and future leaders 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.
World's leading 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.
A truly global, multi-campus programme
Supply chain management and procurement are truly global disciplines. Any programme in these areas needs to duplicate this characteristic in their campuses, their teachers, their students and their content.
SKEMA has seven campuses on five continents. This programme started in Lille, France. And we expect to add the US, South Africa and Brazil as soon as possible.
International student exchange with MIP Milano
MIP Milano is, beside our programme, the other leading master's degree programme in the world with regards procurement. This makes them ideal partners to give a second perspective on this important topic. Once a year, our students have the opportunity to do an international student exchange for elective courses and can go to the beautiful MIP campus in Milan, while some master's degree students from MIP will come to do our electives.
Content designed for future leaders
While it is obviously necessary to teach students the fundamentals of supply chain management and procurement, this only prepares students to deal with today's basic problems. To become future leaders, we also need to equip students with everything they need to address futures trends, and equip them with the skills to become better leaders. Our programme digs deep into future trends in digitalisation and AI, sustainability and ethics plus globalisation. We teach them the skills they need, as well as individual feedback regarding their own personal improvement goals to be better managers and leaders.
Harvard Business Publishing
We make sure to use the best class materials that exist. Harvard Business Publishing is, for many business schools, the highest quality source of class materials in the world. This is why our programme has a partnership with Harvard Business Publishing, and we use not only their renowned cases, but also other world class material like simulations and the mentor, which is designed to help and make great leaders. All these materials are also used at Harvard for teaching their students.
