Global EMBA class returns from intensive Shanghai module

Combining lectures and company visits, the 2016 GEMBA class recently returned from an intensive week in Shanghai as part of their course in supply chain management “Professor Mike Bernon had set the table for some great learning-points on SCM. The intensive week was an eye-opener as to the opportunities and rather tricky challenges that European companies face when doing business in China” commented GEMBA student Lärke Johns.

The class heard first-hand accounts of successful global supply chain management strategies from companies such as Ovodan, DSV, Grundfos and GM Network and of course found time to sample the local Shanghai cuisine. “The Global EMBA students get to experience business culture across the globe first hand, and this trip to Shanghai deepens their understanding of the complexities of supply chain issues  in  global businesses” says Program Manager Hanne Gert Munk, who joined the class for the trip to Shanghai. She continues “it is also the first time the class is away together so it is an excellent opportunity to build the bond and trust they benefit so much from throughout their MBA and after.”

The GEMBA class has a busy travelling schedule with 3 more study tours ahead of them in 2017 to Chicago, London and Kampala.
