In this course, students will understand that successful Supply Chain Management (SCM) requires cross-functional integration of key business processes within the firm and across the network of firms that comprise the supply chain. The challenge is to determine how to successfully accomplish this integration. In this course, the distinction between logistics and supply chain management is identified and a framework for SCM is presented. Class time is also devoted to each of the eight supply chain processes. This course serves as an elective for students pursuing the MBA Marketing Concentration. Prerequisite: Admission to the MBA Program or permission of MBA Director or Chair of the Graduate School of Business.
