Business Administration, Sustainable Supply Chain Management, Second Cycle, 7.5 Credits

Chain of custody, transparent supply chains, sustainable purchasing and circular economy. You will learn about these topics and the sustainability problems within supply chains and approach them from both the buyer’s perspective – the purchasing- and the seller’s perspective -the supply. The sustainability problems are often similar on both sides, but the solutions and ways of dealing with them may differ even if the purpose of creating sustainable supply chains is the same. By comparing and contrasting these two perspectives, you get a good understanding of the sustainability issues and gain competence that is highly demanded in the labor market. The course is given in close collaboration with companies that present real cases and give guest lectures.
