Operations and Supply Chain Management (O&SCM) is about planning and controlling the activities of a company as well as coordination between companies, in order to secure that the right product is delivered in the right quantities, to the right customer, at the right time, and at the right price.
Analytics refers to the scientific process of transforming data into insights for making better decisions.
In this programme, the main focus is to give you a theoretical foundation within O&SCM, and the specialisation will have a high focus on quantitative and analytical skills. As an Operations and Supply Chain Analyst, you need insight into digital tools for analytics to be able to handle and transform data and afterwards model and solve problems within O&SCM.
The programme provides you with an in-depth knowledge about
- How to design strategies in O&SCM.
- Methods for planning and controlling flows of goods and information in a supply chain.
- IT-based tools and how to work with data, matching the increased focus on big data, business analytics, and decision science.
The courses of the programme will provide you with analytical skills that enable you to appraise, systematically structure and analyse the possible solutions to complex problems in operations and supply chains, so that well motivated decisions can be made. The teaching form of the programme encourages student participation and in combination with the Master's thesis, this will provide you with self-management and communication skills.
