The Global Master in Operations and Supply Chain Management (GEMOS), is a collaborative Executive Master programme between MIP Politecnico di Milano in Italy, and EADA Business School in Barcelona, Spain.
The programme seeks to teach executives the fundamentals of operations and supply chain management, with a specific focus on gaining the keen senses and attributes to enable them to assume broader tasks and responsibilities.
Graduates of the programme will benefit from vastly improved managerial capabilities, enhanced leadership skills, greater confidence and directional vision, as well as the ability to influence and impact positively upon the future of their company and career.
The course focuses on delivering education in a highly active and 'hands-on' manner, with an emphasis on a 'learning by doing' approach. The methodology reflects companies’ demand for professionals with skills such as the capacity to reflect, the ability to act in the face of change, the versatility to work in teams and the adaptability to face the challenges of a global environment. These competencies are developed through the case method, business projects, business simulations, analysis and discussion groups and team-working activities, with students constantly working on real-life business cases, and making strategic decisions.
The programme will address certain key issues within operations and supply chain management:
- Process Analysis
- Finance for OM and SCM
- Operations Management
- Strategy and Innovation
- Information Systems
- Supply Chain Management
- Industry 4.0 and Digital Transformation
As the programme is part time, students are able to employ the ideas and practices learnt in class, directly into their current working professions. This allows for simultaneous growth and development, and the ability to effectively implement the didactical and cognitive skills and functions relevant to their position.
In particular, the GEMOS is divided into 7 study modules held every 2 months, with the location of each module alternating between MIP in Milan and EADA in Barcelona, with one special International Week in China.
Each module includes up to two company visits that create great opportunities to gain industry insights and expand networks.
