In the increasingly connected global economy, businesses participate in supply chains that span across national borders to diversify risk, enable speciation, and create collaborative synergy in their efforts of value-creation. A global network of supply chain partners facilitates the purchasing, production, and distribution activities of multinational companies to create value in products or services for international markets. Effective and efficient management of global supply chain can enhance the global competitiveness of firms. Using a combination of lectures, case studies and seminar discussion, the course explores the main issues in global supply chain management (SCM) to underline their strategic importance to firms. It first places SCM in the context of international business. It then discusses the core concepts of SCM, supply chain strategies, and key operations. The later part of the course focuses on the designing of global supply chain to counter risks, enhance efficiency, and promote sustainability.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- define, explain and illustrate the key operational issues involved in international logistics;
- explain and illustrate the significance of logistics and supply chain management in international business;
- explain and illustrate the composition of global supply chain;
- apply this knowledge of managing logistics in international trade operations in analysis, discussion and argument;
- analyse the supply chain strategies of firms;
- examine the levels of risk, efficiency, and sustainability of a supply chain; and,
- communicate effectively in oral and written forms about international supply chain management using appropriate concepts, logic and rhetorical conventions
