The major in Supply Chain Management is directed at future executives in, for example, the fields of business consultancy (strategic, operative and IT), product and project management, development, purchasing, logistics, production and services.
"The excellent management of every single corporate function – development, purchasing, logistics, production, service, etc. – is the prerequisite for an efficient supply chain. Equally important, however, is the smooth interaction of these functions and cross-company coordination between suppliers, manufacturers and customers."
