As a student in Purchasing and Supply Management, you directly benefit from our leading position in research. You will not only get into contact with latest trends in practice but will also be confronted with inspiring research. Studying at the University of Twente enables you to make a difference in firms.
What is Purchasing & Supply Management?
A typical industrial firm in Europe spends about 60% of its turnover on supplies. This figure indicates that Purchasing is important and, to stay competitive, firms need to manage their supply effectively. Effective management of a firm’s supplies is the responsibility of Purchasing and Supply managers: they search, select, contract and eventually manage suppliers to ensure the supply of materials and services that a firm needs....

Cities are an inexhaustible source of inspiration and fascination, made by human hands. During the Master in Urbanism at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, you will learn to understand the city in all its complexity and often improbable scale, to make smart strategic development proposals for its future and to make both functional andt attractive design proposals for actual places in the city.
As urban planner, you can translate the desires of citizens, entrepreneurs, and administrators, and the abstract analyses, theories and stories of sociologists, economists, town and country planners, traffic engineers and similar disciplines into concrete and meaningful spatial design proposals; for the street, neighbourhood, district, city and urban region. Furthermore, you will be supplied with all the tools at the Academy to develop into a central and connecting person in the building of the city and to become a versatile and authentic professional....
The triple degree Master European Mining Course (EMC) covers every aspect of the life cycle of mineral resources. It is a Master programme designed to provide a solid und
Awarded the EIT Label in 2017
With a growing world population and increasing global welfare, the demand for most metals and minerals is increasing. At the same time, metal and material markets are not always predictable and ore grades are decreasing over time, making the challenge to identify and extract resources within economies of scale even more complex. Adding to this complexity, awareness of environmental issues is also growing and the world expects resources to be extracted in a responsible manner. It will be up to the mining engineer of the future to operate successfully in this challenging environment.
Due to the rapid evolution of the raw materials sector, mining engineers will be expected to have a command of vital innovation and entrepreneurial competencies and skills with a deep understanding of sustainability to address these challenges. The exposure to internationally-and culturally-diverse environments has also become an appealing and desired quality, as globalization is increasingly relevant in all industries, including the mining sector and its extensive supply chains....

The MSc in International Tourism Management, offered in partnership with the University of Brighton (UK), offers an innovative and visionary approach to the study of tourism as both economic and social phenomena. Our view is that tourism has become an integral part of history, culture and economies for many regions of the world. This has had a powerful influence on identity, representation and business environments in developed as well as less developing nations.
On a global scale, the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) forecasts an increase in the number of international arrivals in the region of 1.6 billion by the year 2020. As such the industry needs people who understand the significance, complexity and dynamics of a diverse evolving, developing and growing sector....

Base of organizations
Operations form the base of every organization, whether in manufacturing, service or non-profit industries. Operations Management & Logistics is a multidisciplinary field that comprises disciplines such as product development, quality management, logistics, information systems and human resource management. Operations extend from the performance management of a group of design engineers or building in quality-feedback loops to the precise prediction of production and delivery performance. Supply chain management and the design of information architectures for e-business are also part of operations management.
The Master’s degree program provides theory, tools, and techniques for the management of operations. You will apply the knowledge that you gain during the program in the various projects, in which you will learn what it means to carry out your own research. You will learn how to analyze the current operational performance of an organization, how to explain it in terms of quality, cost and time, and how to improve this performance by redesigning business processes....

The Health Economics programme provides you with the concepts and techniques needed to face the sector’s challenges in the 21st century.
Does reading about the rapidly rising costs of health care make you want to do something about it? Would you like to apply economic and quantitative skills to achieve this? The Health Economics programme provides you with the concepts and techniques needed to face the sector’s challenges in the 21st century.
You will gain insight in the peculiarities of a sector where the supply side (doctors) is not driven by maximising profits and the value of the demanded good, health, is subject of debate. Get ready to discuss issues such as:
How can we address problems caused by rising medical costs and population aging?
How can we benefit optimally from advances in medical technology?
How far should solidarity go and where does personal responsibility start?
Is this the right choice for you?
