Course Description & Objectives
This course will focus on
(i)    Understanding of core supply chain management concepts as applicable to the food sector.
(ii)   Enhancing strategic decision-making skills through analysis and integrated perspectives.

  1. Case Based Approach: The sessions will be, mainly, in discussion formats. All the participants are expected to read and analyze the prescribed case/readings assigned for the session individually and in groups. 
  2. Participants will be responsible for preparing and submitting a term paper on a topic provided or a topic of their interest in Food Supply Chain Management.
  3. A simulation game will run (off-class) in parallel to the class-room sessions. This game played by groups requires substantial investment of time. The idea is to apply the learning from the class-room sessions to turnaround fortunes of a company!
