YUAN Tianhua, an alumna who graduated from M.Sc. TriContinent Global Supply Chain Management in 2019, is now a manager of Accenture. She was responsible for providing ERP software implementation to enterprises at a consulting firm, before her participation in the master program. At that time, it was hard for her to provide ideal, complete and optimal solutions for enterprises from strategic or management perspectives. Nor was it easy for her to advise at internal and external levels of the entire supply chain. However, after graduation, she gained a more complete and profound understanding of the principles of ERP software itself and the optimization of the overall supply chain, including logistics and after-sales. The program provides her with comprehensive methods and ways of thinking in advising enterprises to promote supply chain integration, enhancing business efficiency and achieving cost optimization in practical world. At the same time, her scheme is increasingly recognized by customers.
