IIMU launches a course in supply chain management

Gives learners a competitive edge as brands are moving towards global markets, says IIMU Director

The Indian Institute of Management Udaipur (IIMU) has launched a one-year MBA in global supply chain management for experienced professionals. As India is soon to become a supply chain hub, there is an increasing need for business managers who can manage complex supply chains spanning multiple nations that are essential for the global economy.

IIMU’s one-year MBA with intensive specialisation in global supply chain management is designed with the aim to develop future leaders. The programme content includes live projects, industry interactions, and career opportunities in companies across e-commerce, FMCG, manufacturing, retail, and many more such domains.

Prof Janat Shah, Director, IIM Udaipur, said, “Effective supply chain management can provide companies with a major competitive advantage since all the large brands are moving towards global markets. IIMU’s programme curriculum is uniquely conceived to equip students with business tools, global mindset, and interpersonal skills to contribute towards the global supply chain community.”

IIMU has also created an advisory board for its global supply chain management programme. This board consists of highly experienced supply chain professionals from some of the leading companies including Infosys, Delhivery, and DP world. The board helps prepare both current and future managers in this domain by providing insights on strategic initiatives and development plans.
