We at DHA Suffa University firmly believe that students can learn more by interacting with experts in their field. For this purpose, many educational visits are organized at DHA Suffa University to make students more aware of the current practices being followed in the industry. The Management Sciences Department arranged a visit to Herbion Pakistan to provide students with a hands-on learning experience in Supply Chain Management. Students visited Herbion premises on 8th June 2022 where they were given a warm welcome by the management followed by a very interactive session by the Head of Supply Chain and Head of Human Resources.
The Head of the Supply Chain department explained the concept of an extended supply chain and all the different elements involved in it. He also told students about the importance of planning in the supply chain and the problems faced by the company during COVID 19 and how Herbion countered them. Lastly, he guided students in the different areas where they can pursue their careers in Supply Chain Department. It was an interactive session with the supply chain head and students questioned him on different concepts and cleared their queries.
The lecture of Head of Human Resources was followed by the lecture of Head of Supply Chain. She informed students about the Human Resources practices at Herbion and encouraged them to apply for internships as those students who complete their internships with a good recommendation from their immediate supervisors stand a good chance of getting a job at Herbion. The Head of Human Resources also showed a corporate movie enlightening students about the company and the community support program that they are doing at Herbion.
Lastly, the students were taken for a visit to the raw material packaging store to get an idea of how raw materials are managed at the store. The students thoroughly enjoyed the visit and were thankful to Herbion management for providing them with a very good learning experience.
