About Industrial Management
To develop and implement new businesses, new strategies and new ways to operate, are some of the most important and demanding undertakings senior managers and officers in technology based enterprises face. It is demanding, partly because the properties of the core technologies and technology systems applied must be taken into account. Likewise, the characteristics of the industry and the business environment, with its political, economic, sociological and environmental change drivers, also need to be taken into account.
The Executive Program in Industrial Management is intended for members of a management team of e g a division, an SBU, a business area or a product area. The participants might also be prospective members of such a management team, highly respected specialists, or senior managers and officers on other key positions. The program is designed to deliver know-how, broadened perspectives and inspiration, and focuses on the particular challenges that arise within industrial enterprises where e g raw material, components, subsystems, software and knowledge are transformed into a variety of products, systems, solutions and services.Apply hereProgram pdf 2018
