Careers

Your MBA – Supply Chain Management career outlook

Once you graduate with an online MBA with a specialisation in Supply Chain Management, you’ll be able to find a position in a wide range of industries, and perform several different roles. You could, for example, work as…

Supply Chain Consultant

Supply chain consultants work as external advisors for companies looking to improve their supply chain work systems. Their responsibility is to analyse, review and offer new approaches to the way supply chains operate, based on their experience, business knowledge and data. Standardise workflows and help companies solve problems in this dynamic and inspiring role.

Head of Supply Chain

As head of supply chain, you’ll manage and oversee all logistics comings and goings. From transportation supply chain to dealing with suppliers, you’ll act as the main authority in regards to any logistical or supply chain matter. You’ll work not only to ensure smooth running of operations, but also to constantly improve them, support staff and set business goals.

Supply Chain Operations Manager

Be responsible for planning, supervising and improving cross-business value chain processes and operations. Combine your business administration knowledge and logistics and supply chain expertise, and identify weak spots and key improvement areas before anyone else – saving your employers time and money.

Student reviews

This is what our students say

  • Combined with practical work experience, the study programme at IU was the right choice for me.

    Britta Gabriel

    Graduate, Germany

  • The fact that I managed to study alongside my full-time job and also change to a new job with more responsibility was only possible due to IU’s flexible time model.

    Anthony Hoffmann

    Graduate, Germany

  • To enhance my practical experience, a degree in business information systems seemed to me to be very useful and sensible. This is how I discovered IU International University of Applied Sciences. My degree at IU gave me a comprehensive overview of the business administration side of things. Companies are looking for people with a degree and professional experience - with online learning, you get both!
