Sustainable Supply Chain Management: Certificate course

Further education Sustainable Supply Chain Management

The programme is offered in German and is thus directed at prospective students with a good command of German language skills. The programme’s German-language web pages provide detailed information needed on the content of the course and application procedures.

Global supply chains pose social and environmental problems for companies and are a growing challenge in the face of tighter legal frameworks. At the same time, sustainable supply chains offer the potential for customer acceptance and resilient value creation. The certificate provides you with the competences for strategically oriented sustainable supply chain management.
Based on international standards such as the EU Supply Chain Law and a risk analysis, you will develop a sustainable supply chain strategy and learn to implement it in an IT-based way. You will acquire knowledge about supplier management and develop tools for the design of sustainable supply networks. In exchange with experts from research, companies and civil society, you will work out how to manage these collaboratively and use them for a sustainability-oriented transformation of your company.
