Course Detail: MINIGPS1 - Mini MBA-Global Supply Chain
Competition is no longer business-versus-business - its supply chain-versus-supply chain. Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM), which is the integrated management of the set of value-added activities from product development through material procurement from vendors through manufacturing and distribution of the good to the final globally-located customer, addresses how to manage this competition. This is not an easy task! To add to this complexity, today's consumers - especially the coveted millennials - expect companies to also act in a socially responsible and sustainable manner that considers people, the planet, and profits. The Mini-MBA in Global Supply Chain Management introduces the student to the field of GSCM through sessions on procurement, new product development and marketing, forecasting, inventory management, resource management, system integration, international issues, transportation and logistics, quality management, sustainability and performance measurement. Ethics and sustainability are woven into the curriculum to aid the future manager in addressing sustainable issues.
