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.
Knowledge from customs regulations, supply chain management, and IT-based compliance is brought together in this programme. During the two-year programme:
