This programme covers all aspects of effective operations and supply chain management in a highly competitive global marketplace. It looks at how successful operations and supply chain management can shape the sales and profit ambition of a business. Combining XJTLU’s growing reputation, IBSS’s dynamic innovative international expertise, intensive collaboration with the business community and our proximity to the Yangtze River Delta region, the programme is one of the few English-language masters programmes of its type in China.
Throughout the programme, opportunities are provided for you to analyse and examine the most up-to-date developments in operations and supply chain practice through a series of industrial lectures and best practice industry visits. You will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to reach senior managerial positions or become an operations, logistics and supply chain management strategist of the future.
Accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) is currently being sought, while students will be exempted from a number of required modules by the American Society of Transportation and Logistics (ASTL) to qualify for a chartered status.
