Master Supply Chain Management - Máster en Gestión de la Cadena de Suministro
This Masters course provides a complete overview of quality and systems management, from systems and tools, to the development and motivation of people across an organisation.
It is unique in the way it integrates subject areas that are rapidly becoming inter-related in organisations. You will apply appropriate models and theories to the development of Lean organisations and six-sigma process control philosophy.
