Program Overview

For many companies, supply chain management has become an important element of strategic advantage. However, achieving a strategic advantage requires effective design, integration and management of multiple elements within the supply chain. This capstone experience is designed to develop an understanding regarding how to achieve competitive advantage through the effective integration of supply chain elements in support of corporate strategy and in response to competitive realities and market requirements.

This will provide a rich learning experience as participants (1) analyze complex data, (2) evaluate the costs and benefits of cross-functional trade-offs, (3) make critical supply chain decisions, (4) evaluate the consequences of those decisions and (5) work continuously to improve supply chain performance.
