EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

Students will have the opportunity of integrating and applying the knowledge acquired along the program into a capstone project, where they will be able to leverage on new ideas or students’ companies and three options are available. Students will decide which option they go for:

  • Research Project: a benchmark in industry or between industries: search for an idea and identify a problem in a chosen field related to supply chain management that needs to be solved or to answer a question that has not yet been answered, pick a topic by a process benchmarking, evaluating their processes in relation to best practice companies' processes allowing companies to develop plans on how to make improvements or adapt specific best practices, usually with the aim of increasing some aspect of performance. Pick companies of a similar size and but also compare with firms outside their particular sector who excel in areas they want to measure - importing their approach could help them leapfrog competitors.
  • Bring a company with a real problem: work closely with professionals on a real challenging supply chain problem bringing new insights and approaches to a current supply chain challenge or opportunity. Bring one project from the company you have worked for before enrolling in the program or a completely different one.
  • Entrepreneurship project: create a successful business model to add value and competitive advantage, work through several key issues such as competition, market and demand dynamics as well as understanding the supply chain. Typical activities to be analyzed and deployed for this kind of projects are around the definition of inbound logistics (reception, warehousing and inventory management), operations to convert raw materials into a finished product or service, outbound logistics once all operations are completed and the end product is ready for the customer.
