    Executive Master in Global Supply Chain Management Organized in collaboration with the EPFL, the ENPC (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech) and the AFT-IFTIM group the program consists of 6 month theoretical part (academic program) followed by a practical project of 6 month (internship) which is to be carried out in a company.

    General calendar Theoretical part January - July

    Practical project July - December

    Theoretical part The academic program consists of 5 blocks with forty-hour courses each, designed to expand the practical and methodological knowledge of the participants. Each block has 4 modules that cover the latest developments in theory, tools and best practices in supply chain management. Every module has a formal evaluation and a qualifying exam synthesizes the material for all of the courses in the module. In addition to the 20 weeks (5 blocks), 2 weeks business games oriented are organized (W1, W2). These business games are Web-based simulations in which players within a team use the Internet to collaborate, to reach decisions, to implement these decisions and to examine the results obtained. Some of the games are designed to develop a better understanding of fundamental supply chain concepts such as the Bullwhip effect and Risk pooling, but others are competitive games involving multi-enterprise strategic and tactical business decisions. The teaching is ensured by both academics and business experts and is developed based on the methodology provided by the professors from universities involved in the program.

    Practical part Once the theoretical part is successfully accomplished, students must realize a practical project within a company (internship). This project should be completed successfully over a minimum of 20 weeks. It gives students additional work experience and it is also a requirement to obtain the diploma. The goal of the project is to realize a practical study or research showing high scientific capabilities, engineering knowledge and managing skills. The project could be operational or strategically oriented. Academic staff supervises the practical project. It is completed within a company or in one of the research units of the organizing schools. The report containing the results of the work must be presented in front of a jury.
