Munich University of Applied Sciences: Summer School for Supply Chain Management
The University of Applied Sciences – München was founded in 1971 by the amalgamation of seven colleges of technology and higher education, some of which date back to the early 19th century. Today it is the largest university of its kind in Bavaria and one of the largest in Germany. Its great variety of well-structured study programs, the instruction in small groups, its internationality and excellent contacts with industry and commerce make UASM a highly renowned university.
The participants of this summer school will get an insight into several companies and learn about their successful methods first hand. Munich is one of the leading economic, technological and scientific hubs in Germany. Many world-renowned companies from a wide range of industrial sectors are based there, including BMW, Siemens, MAN and Linde.
In the first week of the summer school, companies located in the Munich area will be visited. In the second week, a 4-day tour will take students to 4 different "champions" (leading companies in their business sector) in 4 different parts of southern Germany. During the company visits, the participants will have the opportunity to see selected levers for Operational Excellence at work, and will discuss company-specific topics with the managers in charge.
