Advanced Supply Chain Management 1 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsThe aim of the course is to achieve an understanding and knowledge about the supply chain, its participants, functions and flows and how these are interrelated and interacting. It introduces the students to the analysis of logistic flows for different products and services within and between firms in the supply chain. Further, students will acquire insights into how changes in one part of the supply chain can influence parts, and sometimes the entire supply chain and its development. Students will also learn and understand the concept of process mapping and its role in business improvement along supply chain as well as the broader business environment.
Connection to research and practice
This course builds, to a large extent, on the digital research excellence and practical relevance of the Media, Management and Transformation Centre at JIBS, in business environments where the emphasis on digitalization and digital transformation seeks to link analog research within logistics to the core results of digital transformation research undertaken at the center. Students will have a unique opportunity to observe the region’s logistics hub, while also applying relevant theoretical concepts to cases and best practices from the surrounding region. The course is expected to help students develop their capabilities to identify, manage and use supply chains as a means of creating business value and enhancing competitive advantage, in a variety of ways.
