Kronos Group

Our partnership with the Louvain School of Management

The foundation of our Chair in Strategic Sourcing and Procurement

Kronos Group’s partnership with the Louvain School of Management was founded several years ago in 2017. 

Through this fruitful collaboration, we were able to create the Chair in Strategic Sourcing and Procurement, the first programme of its kind in the region. 

Since the establishment of the Chair, over 200 students have specialised in the procurement field. A number that speaks to the success of our initiative.

Not only has our partnership with the Louvain School of Management (LSM) led to inspiring a whole new generation of procurement professionals, but it has also enhanced the community through research, internships, events, networking, and theses. It also contributes to the continuation of our companies sustainability and competitiveness in the field. 

In light of all of these factors, we are proud to share that our partnership has been renewed for the next three years. 

We remain committed to the development of procurement in Belgium and all over Europe, and we look forward to what the next few years will bring.

The value of our partnership

Here at Kronos Group, we believe that partnering with organisations that share the same vision and values as we do can bring about positive change. 

Our collaboration with LSM, and all that this partnership has achieved, is proof of this fact. 

People development is a core priority for us at Kronos Group, and we believe that individual skill development and dynamic opportunities can lead to the growth of the industry as a whole.

Through our Chair and collaboration with an educational institute of LSM’s calibre, we hope to continue to create opportunities for young professionals to turn to procurement as a strategic, professional career path.

The results of our partnership so far

Kronos Group’s Chair in Strategic Sourcing and Procurement answers the need for more opportunities, enhanced knowledge, and a stable curriculum for the development of the procurement field.

We take an active role in the development of the programme, and its students, by sharing our insights and experience and supporting students in securing rewarding careers.
