MSc in International Purchasing, Logistics and Supply Chain Management

“After high school, I was planning to do a Master’s degree in a European country as I was aware that Europe had vast business opportunities.

I chose Rennes School of Business because the course that I was looking for was offered by only two schools and Rennes School of Business had good grade level. The city of Rennes is a student city with many expats and the cost of living was also reasonable.
The MSc in International Purchasing, Logistics and Supply Chain Management is an 18 months program with an internship period of 6 months. The program deals with the entire supply chain process including HR, Marketing and Finance.

The career development taught us how to build a career. There was practical session for interview and how to reply to the job offer in a professional way.
Rennes School of Business offered both Career development and French language course which were very helpful for me.
Another option is the Alumni Network Association are working in all different kind of companies in France and abroad.

After Studies, I found an internship in Winestar, a French wine company that sells wine in a can. During my internship, I was working with the warehouse and logistics department. After the internship, the company offered me a job as a Business Developer and I worked as a European and Asian B2B development and logistics coordinator. Since December 2015, I have been working as a Project Manager for India and am in charge of building our brand in India. Soon our product will be launched in the Indian Market. And I am also running my own trading company known as SIMCO INTL in Belgium from Feb‑2016.”

Accounting is the language of a business, that speaks not only of its current health, but of what its financial future may look like. Unfortunately, there is a dearth of professionals who both speak and understand this language. From the increasing frequency of scandals that rock the corporate landscape, to the rising creativity in financial reporting, it’s certain that the world needs more skilled accounting experts. That’s where the IAMCA Masters programme comes in to play as it helps students gain a larger perspective of the functioning of the modern-day corporate world, the nuances of its governance and the need for truthful reporting to shareholders who part with their savings to fuel the enterprise. With the breadth of courses, this programme equips future accountants, auditors and financial managers to change the way they see the traditional, yet increasingly creative discipline of accounting. At Rennes SB, we are looking for dynamic and self-driven students to share their country-specific expertise and help undertake a collective journey towards a better understanding of global Accounting practices.
