Functional Programmes

Advanced Programme in Supply Chain Management (APSCM)

To equip managers and practitioners with the concept and practices of SCM, which will help them deliver corporate success through a more efficient coordination with their suppliers and customers. The programme has been designed to suit the requirements of managers involved in SCM operational activities like procurement, production planning, logistics planning, sales and distribution planning, and strategic activities like vendor selection and management, SCM network optimization, and product/process re-design for SCM. The role of logistics and supply chain managers is progressively shifting from supply focused to demand focused owing to the increasing competitiveness of the business environment. This unique programme has been designed by experts at IIM Calcutta to enable these managers to be adequately skilled to keep up with the changes in the business environment and to rise beyond the expectations of their firms. Further, to enable supply chain practitioners comprehend and leverage the business environment as well as to equip them with skills to assume greater responsibilities cross-functionally, the program includes topics on fundamental aspects of management theory.

    The inimitable features of APSCM were hugely comprehensive. In addition the hands on sessions during the campus module were enormously helpful. Interacting with the IIM Calcutta professors who are all stalwarts in their respective fields was a life time experience. The professors were immensely enthusiatic and took care to deliver the most difficult topics in the simplest of ways. This course has helped me to learn advanced ways of working in a scenario where everyday new technologies are getting introduced. It made me feel that the sky will be the only limit.

    I was initially apprehensive about going back to the classroom after more than two decades of professional experience in various roles. However, IIMC’s APSCM course proved me wrong by giving me a good perspective of the various theoretical aspects of Demand Planning, Inventory Management, Operational Excellence and overall Supply Chain Management. The numerous real life business case studies have given me a unique perspective of What, Why and How of contemporary business principles. The insights from the experienced faculty coupled with IIMC’s reputation has thrown open a window of opportunities for me as a Supply Chain Manager.
