Supply Chain Management in Global Business: Making an Impact

How to keep supply chains running smoothly in a ‘bumpy’ global environment?
If you live in Northern Europe and have eaten an avocado recently, you have benefited from a supply chain! Supply chains play a crucial role in connecting markets and economies on a global scale; that is of course a great virtue. But there’s great vulnerability at work too: think about the impact of natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and strikes on the movement of goods and people.

In this 1-week course you will quickly understand the mechanisms used to safeguard 'smooth' flows in global supply chains.

After following the SCM course students should:

  • Have acquired an overview of leading SCM concepts and models in the context of a globalizing economy;
  • Be able to assess the value and impact of contemporary SCM on a company’s competiveness;
  • Be able to apply relevant SCM knowledge in business cases and/or assignments;
  • Have observed and experienced SCM processes at work via company visits.
