Facing a growing demand for trained global purchasing managers from industries, this career-directed program is designed in response to the growing needs of manufacturing, retail and service companies moving toward global sourcing of their raw materials, components and services. How can a firm use global supply chain to hedge against fluctuations in world market demand, price or exchange rate? In integrating a global supply chain, a firm faces many challenges including areas of trade law, product safety, environment protection, as well as logistics and finance.
