The LCL executive education programmes

Organisations increasingly recognise the importance of supply chain management—the success of which relies on the efficiency and effectiveness of their processes, the quality and availability of information, and the interaction with other members of the supply chain. Fast-moving globalisation, technological innovation, changing customer experience have to be integrated in supply chain management.

Companies and organisations rely on supply chain professionals in today's highly competitive global marketplaces.

The lifelong learning programmes offered by the LCL provide a unique opportunity to enhance, improve and sharpen the knowledge and skills of the practitioners.


Instructors from various disciplines teach modules that can build upon one another. Participants can thereby gain more expertise than from a single learning session. In the sessions, they can immediately apply the developed skills to real decision problems. It is of course possible to attend individual sessions. Our executive education programmes are a mix of simulations, case studies, research findings and thought-provoking, interactive class sessions. There has never been a better time to hone your supply chain management skills and develop new ones!

Our programme in executive education picks up top-edge topics that are currently discussed in industry and academia. It will provide the participants state-of-the art concepts, case studies and insights into relevant topics. The topics are related to financial analytics and digitalisation of supply chains.
