  •  MSC2I Master 2
The Pays de la Loire is one of the main industrial regions in France where companies are developing world-class know-how. This strong industrialization results in a dense network of SMEs and mid-size companies. Ensuring the coordination or even the synchronization of flows within these networks is a strong requirement of regional companies. The objective of the project is to create a hybrid second-year Master's course (MSC21 - Management of innovative industrial supply chains), combining management and engineering sciences, based on active learning, in sandwich course format. This project is co-designed by the University of Nantes, PASCA (pôle Achat Supply chain Atlantique) and major regional industrial players. Learn more
