"The Executive Master Class in Supply Chain Management has been extremely valuable. In my view, the biggest differentiator - compared with other courses I have attended - is the top-faculty: an excellent mix of Vlerick and visiting professors, with testimonials by experienced business people and consultants. This programme allowed me to strengthen my theoretical supply chain management knowledge and to translate it into actionable initiatives, in line with the increased focus of supply chain within ExxonMobil Chemical."

"I experienced the Executive Master Class as a refreshing way of educating professionals about the value supply chain management can bring to a company. The quality of the sessions was top notch throughout the entire journey, blending theoretical concepts with practical examples and exciting business games. Instead of receiving an information overload, we deep dived into the details of topics that matter, approaching each question with a critical mind-set. This course has enabled me to provide more profound advice to my clients taking into consideration all dimensions of the supply chain spectrum."

“This Executive Master Class was the perfect combination of theoretical models and practical examples. It provided me with a lot of knowledge and tools. Vlerick’s faculty are open for discussions on business challenges that I face in my specific context. Additionally, the interaction with participants from different industries challenged me to rethink processes and to keep focusing on practical applicability.”

“This programme covers all aspects of the supply chain – starting with business simulation, through in-depth knowledge and up-to-date case studies, to a challenging in-company project. It’s hands-on, includes interesting company visits, and encourages teamwork and great interaction with participants and professors!”

"Vlerick’s Executive Master Class in Supply Chain Management has provided me with a strong balance between theory and practical application. Following the completion of the programme over a 12-month period, I have translated what I have learned into an actual initiative for my company – NorthgateArinso, a leading global Human Resources software and services provider. This in-company project represents a real return on investment for my company. The main benefits of the project can be measured through real cost savings related to an automated and dynamic vendor management approach. This Executive Master Class improved my ability to re-organise processes in place while keeping a long-term strategy in mind. It’s a real asset in my career."

"After years of experience in the field, I was looking for more theoretical knowledge and depth. Vlerick’s well thought-out approach – in which experts elucidate important topics in supply chain management from various perspectives – has taught me a lot. In addition to many practical insights, the programme has also given me an enormous amount of inspiration and energy!"

The programme’s content is of a very high level, the instructors have a wealth of knowledge and practical experience, and the different perspectives in the group provide lots of input during the sessions. This Executive Master Class is full of diversity, practical examples and animated discussions in the field of supply chain management. An absolute must!"

  1. Running your company the smart way

    Everyone is talking about Industry 4.0 – from the Internet of Things, additive manufacturing and the cloud through to artificial intelligence, augmented reality and blockchain. But what does it all mean in practice? It’s not a question of if Industry 4.0 will drastically change the way we do business. It’s a question of when and how quickly. So how can you apply this technology in your business – not just to improve production and performance, but to make a difference for customers?
  2. Local Speed Factories: when the need for speed is vital

    In the 1990s, Adidas moved its entire production to low-wage countries in Asia, but in 2015 it re-opened highly automated Speed Factories in Germany and recently also in the US. These factories are only responsible for a few per cent of Adidas’ total yearly production, but they guarantee extra short delivery times. Why are Adidas and other companies moving a small share of their manufacturing activities back home? Professor Robert Boute and some of his colleagues developed a unique algorithm to answer this question.
