Program content

Supply Chain and Geography: Global Design and Strategic Localization

The global business environment offers firms the chance of allocating their value adding activities around the world in order to increase efficiency and lower costs. Foreign direct investment and the types of investment, as well as tax regimes and availability of production factors such as technology and labor are crucial when creating a global strategy. Should firms engage in offshoring or nearshoring, and what if they were to reshore their activities? This course will provide you with insights in how firms can maximize the effectiveness by developing a global supply chain.

Supply Chain Finance & the Blockchain

Cash is King, and the Supply Chain area is no exception to this. Working Capital Management is gaining lots of attention because of the clear links with suppliers, customers and inventories. This course investigates the area of Supply Chain Finance (SCF) and how for example developments like the Blockchain Technology (BCT) allows businesses to come together in partnerships and accelerate cash flows throughout the supply chain. BCT changes the way individuals and corporations exchange value and information over the Internet. The blockchain system with its distributed ledgers technologies could expedite the processes and lower the overall costs of financing programs, as well as reducing complexity and make data sharing more secure, accurate and efficient. The course will investigate these areas.
