The globalization of trade, the widespread use of e-commerce and continuous customer pressures towards shorter lead times have created severe competition on the basis of time and cost-efficiency for contemporary enterprises and organizations.
At the same time, emerging trends in the business landscape such as mass customization and postponement strategies, responsive business models (pull or make-to-order systems), innovative ICT applications, outsourcing and offshoring (and several other trends in the business landscape), pose new, challenging logistical requirements that call for well-trained logistics professionals on top of just good practitioners.
Recognizing the aforementioned logistical challenges and requirements, the Supply Chain Management course at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens provides a broad, horizontal training at medium level of detail/depth that is targeted to both students/graduates with relevant background studies and professionals with small empirical experience in the field.
A balanced mixture of qualitative (mostly) but also quantitative aspects, theoretical/background knowledge and practical skills are developed within the framework of the various thematic units of the course.
Course participants will be able to build real-world competences in order to apply for jobs in “product-oriented” industrial companies, Logistics Service Providers (3PL/4PL), consulting companies in logistics and SCM, shipping companies, or SCM-related companies in the service sector (e.g., ports/airports, emergency response, public transport, health, banks).
Once the participant completes all the course units successfully, he/she receives a training certificate. Please note that you can choose, either having personal educational support during the course, or receive the required help from the educational forum you’ll have access to. Each choice comes with a different cost for the applicant. After successfully completing the lessons, the participant will receive a training certificate.
The "Supply Chain Management" course targets 2 categories of candidate trainees:
