SCM 463 - Global Supply Chain Management
With increased globalization and offshore sourcing, global supply chain management is becoming an important issue for many businesses. Like traditional supply chain management, the underlying factors behind the trend are reducing the costs of procurement and decreasing the risks related to purchasing activities. The big difference is that global supply chain management involves a company's worldwide interests and suppliers rather than simply a local or national orientation. Enables students to appreciate the challenges of operating supply chains across international boundaries including how to manage various salient issues including sociocultural, economic, technological and political factors that may shape decisions relating to sourcing and moving goods and services across different geographical boundaries.
