Participants in this course gain a working knowledge about supply chain finance, working capital management, and the ways in which companies can improve their working capital efficiency. The material covered in this course is relevant to both large companies as well as small-and-medium enterprises (SMEs).
This course makes clear links between supply chain management and corporate finance. It provides the knowledge and tools to analyze, quantify, and communicate the impact of a firm’s supply
chain in financial terms. Through a mix of exercises and case studies, students learn how the supply chain creates value for the shareholders of the firm and the stakeholders affected by the firm’s operations.
This is not a finance course but rather a survey of accounting and finance topics from a supply chain
perspective. Class sessions are a combination of lectures, in-class exercises, and case discussions
from manufacturer, distributor, and retailer perspectives. Participants are encouraged to take an
analytical approach to identify challenges and assess opportunities as they learn to translate between
the language of finance and the language of operations.
