The Online Master in Operations Management & Logistics seeks to provide skills and competencies to people who want to successfully respond to the new challenges we face today in our society. A new operational approach is required for an environment that is characterized by a structural change in every way.
This program is not intended to theorize about Logistics and Operations, but to develop the necessary criteria to enable all the students to have a global, clear, and comprehensive overview of current operations and see how they efficiently and effectively interact in our current environment.
In the program the theoretical approach is used only to induce the student to “learn by doing” exercises, such as debates and case studies, which seek the enrichment of participants, by identifying all possible solutions and alternatives to the different business situations.
When finishing the Master in Operation Management & Logistics, you will get a master degree given by the BEBS “Barcelona Executive Business School”.
