This program is based on the graduate level supply chain management concentration in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University. The seminar will be offered in two fifteen-week modules. Module One delves into marketing and supply chain management concepts and Module Two concentrates on supply chain management processes. Program content will be delivered through lecture, readings, class discussion and interactive simulations conducted by full-time Broad College faculty. Supply chain management case studies and applications will be liberally used throughout both modules. A project will tie both modules together. It will be scoped/developed during the first module; data will be refined and analyzed in between modules; and results will be presented and reviewed at the conclusion of the second module.
This program is offered in two parts, but participants must begin with Module One in January. The price can be paid by module or for the full program.
