Armed forces are one of our most valuable work forces that contribute their highest level of services to the nation. The officers are believed to be highly oriented towards their task. They are self-disciplined, highly enthusiastic, and courageous. They possess high level of leadership ability, and also indulge in the job at hand with highest level of motivation. It is clear that in this technology savvy era, only knowledge-based employment is possible, and generalized experience will not be of help. Hence, we have designed a challenging learning experience that focuses on Global Supply Chain Management. Today, Supply chains exist for every product and service that we consume, directly or indirectly. Supply chain management is an important area for any businesses to understand in order to deliver their products and services as effectively and efficiently as possible. Global Supply Chain management can make or break a business, finding the efficiency to improve margins and the competitive advantage to generate profits in a global marketplace is essential for any business. The programme provides a mix of theoretical and practical exposure to the supply chain management in today’s global and highly competitive markets. It will develop necessary knowledge & understanding of the processes and techniques used in managing global supply chain activities, so that participants can challenge, innovate and solve problems towards their new professional life.
