Through studying the Supply chain Management for the past five years, I have acquired the wide range of SCM-related knowledge.

Indeed, I have learned much more than supply chain related subjects, I learned how to think things through in a disciplined way, which made me more flexible and capable to find a solution to a problem. Moreover, I am also familiar with ERP systems, since I already had the opportunity to work with SAP through the PP/DS component and the inventory management.

My knowledge was enriched through my field experience at [Company name] and through the different internships I did.
