About

The Supply Chain Management programme at the Chalmers University of Technology focuses on the design, management and improvement of supply chain management strategies. It is multidisciplinary and builds on several scientific disciplines.

Overview

One important way a company can improve its competitiveness is to apply supply chain management (SCM).

The Supply Chain Management programme at the Chalmers University of Technology helps students develop their skills in purchasing, logistics, marketing, transport and general management.

The courses and master’s thesis include different pedagogical ideas and teaching methods in order to fulfil the aim and learning objectives.

Problem-based learning including case studies and problem solving with quantitative and qualitative models is one important aspect of the programme.

Students gain enhanced theoretical knowledge and comprehensive practical experience of related concepts, which allows them to improve the way in which a company finds what it needs to produce a product or service and deliver it to its customers.

Students learn not only to understand current best practice and trends but also to continuously identify and analyse the complex changes that supply networks are undergoing.

Career 

The programme provides students with overall perspectives on supply chains enabling them to work within and across intra-company functions as well as inter-company borders.

Large multinational firms such as Volvo, Scania, SKF, Skanska, Nestlé, Porsche, Procter & Gamble, Quiksilver, DHL, Schenker and IBM, as well as top-flight consultancy firms such as McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group and ADL have employed many students who have majored in supply chain management at Chalmers. Other students have taken on management positions in small and medium-sized enterprises, or continued to receive a PhD.
