Skills to be acquired in this module
By focusing on sustainability from an intra-, and inter-organizational perspective, this module aims to equip students with an in-depth knowledge of the sustainability-related challenges and problems within supply chain management and suggests some tools for managing the same. It further seeks to capacitate students to understand and analyze the trade-offs and conflicts of targets within sustainable supply chain management. The content is closely linked to the latest research in the field, providing a theoretical understanding (within the lecture) while using real-world case examples (within the seminar) to develop a practical understanding simultaneously. Students will be able to connect theory with practice and get a taste of real-life corporate scenarios or lay a foundation for possible master theses. Further, working in groups will help students brush up their team management skills, and the final report shall accustom them to the intricacies of scientific writing.
