Last week, expert resource persons from Extra concluded two courses at the University of Pisa and provided valuable practical knowledge in their respective fields, particularly in the university's logistics masters program.
Advanced logistical management
Michele Rotini, one of Extra's business analysts with extensive experience in logistics systems, delivered a lecture as part of the University of Pisa's Master's in Logistical Systems Management. He spoke specifically on the subject module: "Role of IT for the Management of Logistics".
The module aims to provide advanced skills covering logistics and supply chain technologies and standards. A large part of the course focused on discussing business cases involving some of the top software used in the industry particularly NetSuite, which Extra and Michele Rotini have extensive experience in. Mr. Rotini also lectured in the University of Pisa last year.
The Master's in Logistical Systems Management offered by the University of Pisa is geared towards those in the logistics and transportation sector who wish to acquire and deepen their skills in logistical and freight transport processes with an emphasis on the maritime sector in the context of the Euro-Mediterranean area.
The training course is based on an interactive and interdisciplinary approach, which includes theoretical lessons, case studies and practical exercises. The Master program has been designed to provide an opportunity for knowledge and insight into the most innovative trends in the methods, technologies, organization and strategies applied to the logistics and transport sectors.
Mr. Rotini has been giving lectures at the university's logistical systems management program for the past three years through Extra and the University of Pisa's long term and multifaceted collaboration. Extra looks forward to continuing to contribute to the development of the future leaders in the logistics sector.
