Global Supply Chain Management (GSCM) is an exciting and focused course for preparing students in implementing, coordinating and managing Supply Chains in global contexts. It will be valuable for students who would like to pursue a career in consulting or take a position in GSCM. Its setup comprises issues relating to the development of supplier relationships, operations improvement, procurement strategies, inventory control, logistics operations, transportation networks as well as contemporary issues affecting these areas. Specifically, the course will:
- Explain and critically apply theories on logistics and supply chain management with a focus on global scales;
- Integrate theories and appraise strategies on managing supply chain operations within the context of global business management;
- Understand the inter-relationship between supply chain management and global contemporary issues (e.g., global sourcing);
- Identify frameworks to manage risks and opportunities for competitive and economically sustainable supply chain management in a global setup.

The course will be both qualitative and quantitative. From a qualitative point of view, cases will be analyzed to derive best strategies and identify optimal policy. Qualitative sessions will inspire students' interactions, discussions and debates. The course of GSCM also consists of applications of quantitative devices. Decisions undertaken and discussed in the qualitative sessions need robust and objective supports through quantitative methods and models. These objectives are carried out at a course level by a solid review of the theory and the methodological base associated with supply chain management, along with a discussion of advanced topics, trends and directions. At a class level course topics are reviewed through a combination of lecture, discussion, and student project work.

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
