In Industry 4.0, Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM) is a practice that sits at the intersection of technology, strategy, logistics, and transformation. Emerging technologies have forced a rethink in the design of operations and supply chain processes and management. IIM Kashipur’s Executive Programme in Operations & Supply Chain Management (EPOSCM) is a dynamic programme aimed at introducing professionals to both theoretical models and practical expositions in the area of OSCM.
From suppliers to eventual customers, OSCM covers everything along the path on which goods travel, and as such, can make or break a business. Both operations and supply chain management add value to the business, shape the way people consume products and services, and drive economies. IIM Kashipur’s Executive Programme in Operations & Supply Chain Management (EPOSCM) is designed in a way to provide the participants with the frameworks and tools to identify, evaluate, coordinate, develop, and manage essential OSCM processes and predict future risks by spotting patterns and trends throughout the operations and supply chain network.
By employing an immersive pedagogy and robust curriculum, the programme imparts learners with contemporary knowledge and integrates design of operations strategy with tools in management sciences, information systems, supply chain networks, and other cross-functional domains. Through a hands-on learning approach, participants will be able to apply classroom learnings to solve real-world OSCM problems.
