About the course

Recent research suggests that supply chains are starting to redefine both product design and production technology, and can be sources of competitive advantage. To address this, SMU’s Executive Development has developed the Global Supply Chain Management programme.

The primary role of supply chain management is increasingly complex. Simultaneously, increasing amounts of data availability and processing power present opportunities for refinement. Recent research suggests that supply chains are starting to redefine both product design and production technology, and can be sources of competitive advantage. To address this, SMU’s Executive Development has developed the Global Supply Chain Management programme.

Topics/Structure

Led by SMU Professor Shantanu Bhattacharya, this programme will will guide participants through the complexity and uncertainty of the modern supply network and the operational experiences of Asia, and explore the development of supply network resilience. In addition to a heightened appreciation of value within the network, the differentiated solutions they offer incorporate sustainability and the holistic alignment of core processes.

Understanding and balancing the trade-offs when designing and managing international supply chains is complex. As such, they will lead discussions on the future of East-West interdependence in global supply chain networks as trade-balances, currencies and R&D hubs shift.

It includes a realistic simulation of a global and international cost-effective, resource sensitive, and flexible supply chain.
