ONLINE SUPPLY CHAIN OPERATION MANAGEMENT COURSE

Course Overview : Supply Chain is the most discussed topic in business today. In today’s highly competitive and global environment, companies do not compete; supply chains and industries compete. From the source of raw materials to customers and back, the Supply Chain involves the flow of materials, cash, and information among all of the firms that contribute value to a product. It includes the location and management of facilities that supply, manufacture and store products and their materials. It also includes service providers that link and integrate them.

Supply Chain is a significant and critical component of the majority of businesses, and accounts for the bulk of the people, cash and value-add in a company. The current coronavirus crisis and international political issues emphasizes this dramatically.

USC Marshall’s Supply Chain Operations Management course, directed at managers in supply chain, provides an overview of supply chains: what their key functions are, how it works as a business (financial impacts and levers), and identifies major challenges in managing an efficient supply chain. It also discusses various strategic and tactical supply chain issues such as distribution and fulfillment strategy, inventory strategies, outsourcing, procurement and supply contracts, the value of information, customer value and risk management. This course is a critical component of business education and effectiveness, and is directed at managers from across the organization.
