Purchasing and Supply MBA
This MBA is designed to respond to the demands of the Purchasing and Supply industries, specifically targeting the requirements of the Institute of Purchasing and Supply.
Recognition that effective supply chain management plays a critical role in the competitive advantage of most world class industrial companies has focused growing attention on its teaching and practical application.
In many organisations, purchased goods and services account for up to 80% of product cost, therefore the management of the supply chain has become a competitive priority. Even in organisations where the purchased content is lower, there is an ever increasing demand for effectiveness and efficiency in the procurement and logistics process.
Escalating competition and the globalisation of supply markets make it essential that supply professionals keep up-to-date and broaden their capabilities in key areas such as;
* Product development
* Purchasing and Supply
* Supplier development
* Contracts management
* Supplier quality
* Project management
