Elements of supply chain management have been studied and practiced in marketing, logistics, and operations management. We will attempt to integrate these different perspectives to develop a broad understanding of how to manage a global supply chain. The most important concepts, methods, and techniques of managing global supply chains will be discussed in the course using examples, cases, numerical illustrations and problems. By the end of the course, you should have developed an appreciation for the challenges in managing a global supply chain and the ability to apply analytical tools and conceptual frameworks for solving real supply chain problems. _____________________________________________________________________________ COURSE MATERIALS The course is delivered through a combination of lecture, cases, games and project.
