Global Supply Chain Security

supply-chainNote: This program can be taken as part of the Global Supply Chain Management Certificate program, or as a stand-alone class.

Supply chain security refers to efforts to enhance the security of the supply chain, the transport and logistics system for the world’s cargo. It combines traditional practices of supply chain management with the security requirements driven by threats such as terrorism, piracy, and theft. Guaranteeing acceptable conditions in a global supply chain can be a complex challenge. As part of their efforts to demonstrate ethical practices, many large companies and global brands are integrating codes of conduct and guidelines into their corporate cultures and management systems. Through these, corporations are making demands on their suppliers (facilities, farms, subcontracted services such as cleaning, canteen, security etc.) and verifying, through social audits, that they are complying with the required standard.
