Global Supply Chain Management

Jean-François Cordeau
Academic Advisor

Global supply chain management combines the functions of product procurement, production, warehousing and distribution, from raw material suppliers to consumers. Its importance to the economy is significant: various studies have shown that transportation alone accounts for more than 10% of a product’s cost.

As globalization continues to affect markets and supply sources, particularly in countries where the cost of production is low, the international nature of supply chains plays an important role in a company's success. Relying simultaneously on operations management, operational research and international business, logistics also makes use of marketing and information technologies.

The M.Sc. in Global supply chain management provides future managers with a holistic vision of the various components of international logistics, as well as in-depth knowledge of the main decision-making tools used in this field. Graduates work as logistics specialists for large manufacturing, distribution and retail businesses, or as analysts for consulting and logistics services firms.
