Chitkara Business School has collaborated with India largest Supply Chain & Logistics Company-Safexpress, to create a specialized MBA program in this field which covers a wide spectrum of topics including transportation management, lean supply chain, strategic sourcing, warehousing, performance -based logistics, constraints management, supply chain network design, and demand management.
Until a few years ago, logistics was rarely discussed in large corporations. Today however, effective logistics and supply chain management has gained immense prominence in corporate boardrooms. However, there are huge gaps when it comes to availability of quality manpower in this industry due to lack of formal education and overall industry perception. Safexpress and Chitkara University intends to fill these gaps by way of providing quality education, which has a right balance of theoretical and practical training in supply chain & logistics.
Safeducate was founded in the year 2007, when Safexpress- India’s largest Supply Chain and Logistics Company, envisioned the skill need in the supply chain & logistics industry. Safexpress has firmly entrenched itself as ‘Knowledge Leader’ and ‘Market Leader’ of Indian supply chain & logistics industry.
MBA in Logistics & Supply Chain Management program aims to train and develop future leaders and managers in the fast-growing Logistics & Supply Chain sector. This highly integrated program enables students to acquire knowledge and understanding of multiple facets of supply chain business including purchasing, materials management, supply-chain management, transportation, customs regulations, foreign exchange, international trade and information technology among various other aspects.
The first year of the course would involve general MBA education. In the second year, Safeducate will be educating the students on core concepts and practices of Supply Chain Management. We would also be covering Operational, Strategic & Implementation issues in Supply Chain Performance Metrics & Modeling, Logistics Management and recent SCM trends. This classroom training will be followed by a six month industry internship in various organizations. This internship will be divided into 4 stints of 45 days each and is meant to provide extensive on-ground training in supply chain & logistics to the students.

According to Industry estimates the demand for skilled manpower in this industry will be approximately 20 million in the year 2020 (Directorate of Skill Development Centre, Government of India) Keeping pace with the changing trends in the industry and varied requirements of corporate, focus on imparting practical training required for any job alongside domain knowledge has become the need of the hour.
