Global Supply Chain Management
This course introduces students to the strategic importance of good supply chain management practices. Students will be taught to understand how good supply chain management can be a competitive advantage, whereas weaknesses in the supply chain can hurt the performance of a firm. Within the strategic framework, students will be taught to identify facilities, inventory, transportation, information, sourcing, and pricing as the key drivers of supply chain performance. This course also aims to show students how these drivers may be used on a conceptual and practical level during supply chain design, planning, and operation to improve organizational performance.
