With the ever-increasing need of business managers who can manage complex supply chains spanning multiple nations around the world, effective supply chain management is considered an essential competitive advantage. Realizing this, IIM Udaipur introduced the 12-month full-time residential MBA in Global Supply Chain Management, now with two options wherein one option offers dual degrees - MBA from IIMU and MS from Purdue University - and the second option offers MBA from IIMU with two weeks of international experience. This unique program is designed for experienced professionals aiming at developing the potential of future leaders intending to work in top-level roles in large corporates.
IIMU strongly believes that leaders are best developed in a multicultural environment, being taught by world-class faculty. This program will also provide students with an opportunity to explore globally acclaimed practices in supply chain management while learning complex problem solving and critical thinking skills.
Professor Janat Shah, Director, IIM Udaipur, said, "Supply Chain Management is nowadays counted among one of the major competitive advantages since major brands are moving towards global markets. The curriculum is uniquely conceived to equip students with business tools, global mindset, and interpersonal skills to contribute towards the global supply chain community."
He further added, "Students pursuing the program in India also have a two-week International Business in Practice component which allows students to work for two weeks on a live business problem in a company in another South Asian country or the Middle East.
Complementing the curriculum would be professional mentorship; development of analytical skills with Bloomberg and analytics lab; freedom to choose electives to align with their career goals; and working on group assignments and live industry projects."
