The Smart Factory and Digital Supply Chain

Industry 4.0: Smart operations & supply chain management for sustainable competitive advantage

This unique programme combines the expertise of one of Europe’s leading institutes of technology and one of its leading business schools. At Vlerick Business School, you’ll learn the very latest in smart supply chains and digital leadership. While through the knowledge of the RWTH Aachen Engineering Campus, we guarantee an action-focused learning experience: alternating content sessions with a virtual demo factory visit to put your new knowledge into practice which will allow you to gain a solid knowledge base and turn your own company into a factory of the future. This powerful combination will give you the skills, experience and confidence to master the transition towards a digital factory and supply chain.

Planning ahead can be challenging these days. As a result of new and strict measures taken by the political authorities, all higher education institutes and universities have shifted to code red. This means that on-campus classes are no longer allowed and that online education is the way forward for the upcoming period. But you can rely on us to have the agility and know-how to adapt the format of your programme to an interactive and inspiring online experience for you that’s just as engaging as our face-to-face sessions.
