Combine cultural understanding with knowledge of economics, management, and technology
Are you dreaming of an internationally oriented career, where you can become one of the company's key people? Then a degree in Global Management and Manufacturing might be something for you.
In this globalised world, where companies at large work across national borders, there is a need for people who can combine cultural understanding and a high level of English with in-depth knowledge of economics, technology, and management. As a graduate engineer in Global Management and Manufacturing, you will work globally with the management of business, production, and services in close collaboration with customers and suppliers around the world. You will become a key person in the company, where you will have an overview of all areas of the company.
What will I learn?
As a BEng in Global Management and Manufacturing, your main competence will be Supply Chain Management, which is, among other things, about the company's supply chain being adapted and optimised to the market the company supplies. The programme gives you the skills to design and optimise companies' global supply chains (Supply Chain), evaluate, plan, and implement the establishment of production and collaboration across national borders, work with strategic purchasing and planning, lead teams and corporate projects across cultures and organisations and much more. You will gain knowledge on how to design a product for a specific market.
