The increasing globalization of suppliers and customers has increased the concerns with the issues of sustainable and responsible management across global supply chains. The course explores the main risks, opportunities and practices in global supply chain management from both conceptual and practical perspectives on sustainable practice. It looks at how organizations as varied as Intuit, Wal-Mart, Starbucks, and the US Marine Corps address and apply responsible and sustainable supply chain strategies. Students will engage in applied studies and learn from academics and practitioners about the current challenges in this critical business arena.
