Message from Alumni

This programme combined practical and theoretical knowledge to help me develop a global perspective of supply chain as well as critical thinking and operational skills. Handling my job and taking the programme at the same time trained me to perform well under pressure and tackle challenges within limited time. The programme also enabled me to extend my network and make friends with people working in the same field.

This programme helped us look at the entire supply value chain from different perspectives and understand supply chain management in a systematic way. Studying business cases allowed us to think outside the box and working with teammates from various industries helped us broaden our horizons. Overall, the programme enabled us to see decision making, team management, and relationship with suppliers and customers from different angles
