In the modern network economy, European firms spend 60% of their turnover on purchased components. Managing the buyer-supplier interface through professional Purchasing and Supply Management (PSM) is crucial for European competitiveness. The PERISCOPE project developed a curriculum and Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for teaching the skills characteristic of successful purchasers. However, sustainability is now obligatory for businesses. PERISCOPE aims to prepare students for the future of PSM by identifying necessary skills, developing a course-set, and creating open student-centered digital learning with simulation games. PERISCOPE will also focus on teaching global mindset, critical thinking, and entrepreneurial skills.
