Course Syllabus

Abstract

Lecture series cover key topics of supply chain planning, such as sustainable global supply chains, intermodal transport networks, inter-organizational systems in logistics, etc. The aim of the course is to develop students’ analytical and decision making skills related to supply chain planning. The course is based on interactive teaching style with intensive student participation. The course combines group-work components, class discussions, student’s group work presentations, case-studies.
