In the Online program you can choose from the following online courses:
Logistics in the Supply Chain
This course introduces theories and practices of modern logistics management within a market-driven supply chain-oriented framework. Students will develop analytical skills for sound decision-making by studying inventory management, forecasting, warehouse management, outsourcing, third party logistics and service providers, and performance measurement.
The purpose of this course is to learn and apply the principles, philosophies and processes of supply chain management to the purchasing management process on a global basis. The vision of the course is to learn to facilitate the continuous improvement of the purchasing management system in which we work and companies operate. Toward this end, real company case studies will play a vital role in this educational process.
Supply Chain Cost/Design Issue
This course approaches supplier and supply chain prices and costs both conceptually and operationally. Since supplier management must change based on the commodity's characteristics, market structure, and importance to the buyer, the course begins with an organizing model and discussion of sourcing strategy and commodity/supplier classification. The course then covers supplier prices and pricing strategies, understanding supplier costs and total cost of ownership models.
Students will learn how to select, develop and execute appropriate sourcing strategies and processes. The course is taught through case studies that cover all aspects of supply management.
