REQUEST INFO
MR. GORDON CRICHTONProgramme Director of MAI - International Purchasing & Innovation Management of KEDGE Business School

Whether you are an engineer, a graduate of a grande école, have a university master's degree or have solid professional experience, pursuing a specialised master's degree is a guarantee that you will broaden your skills and complete or enhance your initial training. You will also have to make the crucial choice of a profession corresponding to your personality, guaranteeing your professional and personal development. The job opportunities are also of the utmost importance to you. Your immediate objective is therefore to find a springboard training course to succeed quickly in a profession with a future and rich in diversity.

The growing number of job offers in purchasing clearly shows that successful companies are looking for highly qualified men and women to take on this strategic role (according to APEC, 78% of the offers for purchasing executives require a specialised diploma in purchasing, of which the MAI diploma is the most important). The MAI specifically guarantees management skills (closely linked to interpersonal skills and personality) as well as solid abilities in purchasing culture and techniques, which are essential for carrying out the new missions assigned to today's purchasing managers. At MAI, there are more than 1100 job offers for 400 students each year.

Multinationals now recruit MAI students in almost every sector: food, cosmetics, household products, pharmaceuticals, automotive, aeronautics, not to mention most service industries.

Initial training is an additional asset for future employment and often a determining factor. Thus, whether you are a scientist or a manager, the "Purchasing" specialisation is not a turning point, but rather a pragmatic continuation that allows you to optimise your initial training, in a management function, in a communication profession and in an evolving and international context. The MSc programme delivered entirely in English is available full-time in Bordeaux.

Today's business world presents us all with a great challenge. It is up to the young graduates to take up this challenge!
