MSc in Sustainable Supply Chain Management


Supply chain management is the management of all activities in business networks. This means managing the flow of products, services, and information not just within your own company but also through suppliers and customers. Supply chain management extends beyond traditional purchasing and logistics to the design and management of the complex web of relationships that is required to deliver products and services to the final customers.
