Mumbai, May 2022: Ranked as the #3 best B-School in India (NIRF, 2021) and #1 as per Business Today ranking (2021), the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIM Calcutta), has announced the launch of the tenth batch of the Advanced Programme in Supply Chain Management in collaboration with Emeritus. With the aim to upskill Indian professionals for a high-growth career in supply chain management, this career-defining 1-year programme is designed to benefit the supply chain practitioners from manufacturing and service organisations looking for a challenging, advanced programme to drive supply chain efficiency and profitability through contemporary strategies, modelling, and analytics. This programme is also ideal for professionals looking to switch careers in supply chain analytics and enhance their decision making through structured insights into supply chain techniques and industry best practices.
The Indian supply chain and logistics sector is estimated to be a US$200-billion industry with a contribution of over 14% of India’s GDP (Entrepreneur, 2021). To stay ahead of the technological advancements in the supply chain domain, it is essential for professionals to continuously upskill themselves with contemporary strategies to drive logistics and supply chain operations that are resilient, agile, and future-proof.
In this context, the Advanced Programme in Supply Chain Management is designed by IIM Calcutta to help participants recognise, revisit, and reprioritise their logistics and supply chain strategies. This 1-year programme is delivered through an interactive pedagogy that integrates case studies, simulations, group discussions, and applied learning projects, interspersed with two on-campus immersions and live online lecture sessions from leading IIM Calcutta faculty. This cutting-edge programme offers best-in-class insights to assume cross-functional roles, efficiently coordinate with suppliers and customers, and drive corporate success. Towards the end of the programme, upon successful completion, participants will receive a certificate of completion from IIM Calcutta and the prestigious IIM Calcutta Executive Education Alumni Status.
Commenting on the launch of the tenth batch of this programme, Programme Directors, Prof. Bodhibrata Nag, Professor, Operations Management, and Prof. Megha Sharma, Associate Professor Operations Management from IIM Calcutta, said, “In a rapidly changing business landscape marked by fast-paced technology-led disruption across supply chains globally and the uncertainties that it brings along, upskilling with contemporary insights and best practices is indispensable for business success. As per recent media reports, India will play a significant role in reshaping supply chains and could contribute more than $500 billion annually to the global economy by 2030. We have upskilled over 400 professionals since the inception of this programme. We believe that learners will gain in-demand skills to develop, optimise, and transform digital supply chains so that their organisation has a unique competitive advantage”.
Mohan Kannegal, CEO, India and APAC, Emeritus, said, “Technological advancements have enhanced the complexity of supply chain operations exponentially. A recent Gartner report stated that by 2025, more than 50% of the supply chain organisations would have a technology leadership role reporting directly to the chief supply chain officer. As logistics and supply chain managers progressively focus on demand rather than supply, there has never been a better time to upskill for a high-growth career in supply chain management. With insights from leading IIM Calcutta faculty, the Advanced Programme in Supply Chain Management is poised to assist participants effectively and efficiently optimise and automate logistics and supply chain activities to improve overall business profitability”.
The tenth batch of this programme begins on June 30, 2022, with flexible payment options and low-cost EMI options available. The programme is offered through Emeritus, a global leader in making high-quality education accessible and affordable, offering a digital-first, seamless learning and high engagement experience.
