16th July, Gwalior: Safexpress, India’s largest supply chain & logistics company, has collaborated with one of the top educational institutes of India, ITM University, Gwalior. Safexpress has been working towards bridging the huge skill gaps prevalent in the supply chain & logistics industry of India through its training academy, Safeducate. In line with that, it has tied up with one of the most reputed institutes in the country to create a specialized MBA course in this field.
Speaking about the importance of this unique industry-academia collaboration, Ms. Divya Jain, Director Safeducate, said,“Supply chain & logistics industry is the backbone of the Indian economy and is one of the largest employment generators in the country. 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 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.”
She added,“We have introduced a two year MBA course with specialization in SCM & Logistics at ITM University, Gwalior. 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 SCM & Logistics. We would also be covering Operational, Strategic & Implementation issues in SCM, Supply Chain Performance Metrics & Modeling, Logistics Management and recent trends in SCM. 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. This unique course will help the students in building a career with supply chain & logistics industry.”
Talking about launching this MBA program at Gwalior, Ms. Jain remarked,“We are delighted with this tie-up happening at Gwalior, one of the important education hubs in India. The culture-rich city has 5 universities and various national institutes making it a sought-after destination among students. Our specialized course will add a new dimension to the MBA education scenario in Gwalior as well as across India.”
Speaking about her interest in future alliances between Safexpress and other institutes, Ms. Jain explained,“At Safeducate, we are working towards developing a world class institute which propagates global best practices in the field of supply chain & logistics management. Going forward, we will be introducing such exclusive courses in more educational institutes all over India to produce trained professionals in supply chain & logistics industry.
