International operations and logistics

Description

The purpose of this course is to provide the learners with an insight of the supply chain and logistics management in an international trade context.

So this course should focus on the specific aspects of the logistics and supply chain management.

It is very important to keep in mind that the program does not focus on the logistics management but on international management.

This course should provide the learners with tools and keys that would be useful for them in their future career plans.

So, the 2 red lines of this course are :

  • Focus on the international aspects

  • Consider the supply chain logistics as a supportive management tool for the international business development.

 Learning approach

The learning approach should be based on practice, with a good theory/practice balance.

As the course will be articulated on 5 day-modules, our suggestion would be to concentrate the conceptual learning on the first two days.

Of course, the conceptual learning doesn’t mean a pure theoretical lecture. This learning would be enriched with practical examples and exercises.
