International Business School: Module 2 - Supply Chain Risk Management
The pandemic has accelerated the drivers of geopolitical change, entrenching the bipolar confrontation between the US and China, the reconfiguration of international supply chains and the declining commitment to international law. An increased focus on sustainability and climate change, rising inequality within and across nations, the dominance of big tech and the rise of cryptocurrencies, is rapidly shifting the global balance of power.
The conflict in Ukraine has been a shock to supply, compounding the deep shock inflicted to supply and demand by the coronavirus pandemic. These occurrences have been severe in their implications for every economy affected and revealed the inherent weaknesses in international supply chains.
These challenges have been exacerbated by government sanctions and the prioritising of geopolitical objectives over security of supply and established patterns of trade. Never have global supply chains been under such pressure and the role of the supply chain manager been of such significance to corporate success.
Through case studies, practical examples and discussion, this course will provide the tools to navigate the changing landscape of international supply chains. It will provide a strong foundation to reconsider supply chain management, to develop strategies to enhance security of supply and to reconsider supply chains in the context of long term environmental sustainability.
