Part-time Executive Master in Customs and Supply Chain Compliance

Combining safety, security and sustainability with compliance and efficiency in international trade

Innovative developments force customs professionals, other inspections and business professionals to collaborate. You must follow the general trend towards regulatory compliance rather than command and control. This is facilitated by information systems. In RSM’s unique part-time executive master programme, you will explore and discuss these developments, and assess their value and implications for practice.

Unique content for leaders in customs and international trade

Knowledge from customs regulations, supply chain management, and IT-based compliance is brought together in this programme. During the two-year programme, you will learn an integrated approach to investigate how:

  • you can improve effectiveness and efficiency of customs supervision and enforcement on compliance, safety and security
  • you can stimulate uniform application of customs laws across the EU
  • you can reduce administrative burdens for business and government
  • you can embed compliance with laws and regulations concerning the import and export of goods into business processes and information systems
  • customs supervision can meet business challenges
  • you can create mutual understanding among parties from diverse backgrounds.
