Interdisciplinary Elective Course
This course will provide students with an in-depth understanding of the role of creative industries in modern supply chain management, and business model innovations. We will examine the flow and process of supply chain management which includes product design and development, raw material sourcing, vendor selection, manufacturing, quality control, logistics, distribution and retailing. We will focus particularly on how creative industries play their roles in each node of the supply chain. By drawing examples from a variety of companies and field experiences from practicing experts, our goal is to demonstrate to students and encourage them to critique the increasingly complex relationship and interaction between creative industries and supply chain management. Guest speakers will be invited to share field experiences, where and when necessary.
