International Supply Management
Trends and challenges such as the focus on key competences or the global shortage of raw materials call for professional management of the ever-growing supply chain. We provide training for the purchasing managers of the future who need to have a comprehensive understanding of effective information and materials flows in customer-supplier relations.
Mode of Study
Lectures are held on 15 weekends per semester (Fridays from 14:00 until 22:00 and Saturdays from 8:30 until 16:30) on the FH JOANNEUM campus in Kapfenberg. In order to promote sharing of knowledge and experience, lectures generally require on-campus attendance. They are, however, supplemented with virtual learning units for group work.
Dates & Deadlines
A university degree or relevant work experience:
- Degree in Business Management, Industrial Management or Law with some initial work experience, preferably in purchasing, procurement and/or logistics.
- Degree in a relevant subject such as Business Management, Industrial Management, Law or related subjects.
