‘There is definitely a need for this part-time educational track. The extra focus on performance coaching and management training is a direct result of our quantitative and qualitative research,’ according to Arthur Fellinger, Programme Director.
‘A graduate from the track will be well-positioned to take the next step in his or her career. A senior position and eventually a director’s position in supply chain management is a realistic possibility. The generic skillset acquired through the Performance Coaching and Management Training track prepares a graduate for more senior, generic management roles.’
Both the full-time and part-time programmes are similar but differentiate from each other in certain aspects. ‘Like the full-time programme, the part-time programme has a clear link with the Port of Rotterdam. Through applied case-based education, the part-time students will be able to use insights gained directly in their day to day work. The Performance Coaching and Management Training track is unique to the part-time master.’
Full-time International Supply Chain Management alumna, Yelyzaveta Drevetniak, agrees that the knowledge and links with industry at RBS are superb. ‘For me, this university gave me a lot. All the knowledge I received was very applicable. Right now, at work, I’m able to use techniques that I learnt during the programme. It was very beneficial.’
