Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management will conduct a seminar on Global Supply Chain Management on June 8-11. During the supply chain program, a faculty drawn from both academia and industry will review planning models and practical tools for supply chain management and multi-plant coordination. Course sessions will give students exposure to logistics strategies for multinational companies and on making use of supply chain components to improve service and reduce costs.
Enrollees can expect discussions on e-commerce and the supply chain and methods of integrating electronic commerce into existing business practices. The program will also delve into the how-to of collaboration.
The program is designed for senior and middle level managers and consultants responsible for supply chains and logistics. The school says the program is valuable for logistics, inventory control and transportation managers. It can be combined with an additional program called Factory Physics: The Science of Lean Manufacturing, which extends through June 13. The two programs are core components of Kellogg's two-year Master of Management and Manufacturing program.
The supply chain program runs from Sunday evening to mid-day Wednesday. Factory Physics follows, concluding at mid-day Friday. The progr a m takes place at the James L. Allen Center on Northwestern's Evanston, Ill., campus. The fee is $3,900 for the supply chain program and $5,850 for the combined program. The fee includes tuition, program materials, accommodations and meals.
