Examines supply chain decisions from a strategic perspective. The course uses Hau Lee’s (2004) concepts of supply chain agility, alignment and adaptability to guide the exploration of the supply chain strategy domain using case studies.

Develops real option analysis to create design flexibility and measure its value so that it can be incorporated into system optimization.

Provides concepts, techniques and tools that enable students to design, analyze and improve core strategic operational capabilities of a firm.

Provides generic knowledge of process management, which includes process design and re-engineering.

Equips students with knowledge and expertise in connecting the planning level of decision making in supply chain management.

Introduces students to the courses of negotiation, total cost analysis and supplier relation management

To meet the changing needs of supply chain and logistics environment

The Research module involves independent research to cement what students have learnt in various courses and field work during the program. Every student must complete a Masters thesis to demonstrate the ability to study a complex topic in a practical yet scholarly rigorous manner. To ensure that the research effort is meaningful and unique, students are encouraged to select topics according to their interest that are relevant to the industry – keeping in line with the overall philosophy of MISI to undertake applied research. The corporate sponsored theses are done either in pairs or individually in attempting to answer research questions raised by the sponsoring companies. Every effort is made by the MSCM program to turn this academic requirement into an opportunity for students to conceive and execute independent research on a topic of their choice. The SCALE graduates often reflect on their thesis as one of the most challenging and rewarding components of this Masters program.
