This workshop bridges the gap between finance and supply chain by demonstrating how supply chain actions affect the income statement and the balance sheet—two key financial statements—and showing how supply chain decisions can be translated into financial metrics.

Target group

Executives and managers who need and want to know supply chain finance fundamentals to make better business decisions.


“The workshop was not only useful from a financial theory perspective but the dynamic exchange of experience and perspectives from all participants with diverse backgrounds and seniorities within the profession was extremely useful. It was fantastic to have academic expertise from MIT available in Luxembourg at the historical university campus at Limpertsberg. We were well looked after throughout the day, allowing us to focus on learning.”

Supply chain and finance are two core functions of every business. The success of business is often measured in financial terms, and supply chain management is no exception to it. Supply chain professionals use different metrics and indicators to measure performance. Understanding how these metrics and indicators function is an asset for every supply chain professional who must speak the language of finance in order to communicate achievements to top management.

In this workshop, supply chain professionals learn how supply chain and finance interact and what can be gathered for operations and finance by analysing the activities from a financial perspective.
