Obiettivi formativi

The goal of this course is to provide the main knowledge about SCM, logistics and resilient supply chain.
The interface between strategic management and logistics is recognized as a priority for management in organization, and both practitioners and academics are analyzing when and how the management of the supply chain as a whole can represent a way for achieving the competitive advantage.
The scope of this Ph.D.’s course is therefore to describe definitions, strategic/operational objectives and characteristics of Logistics and SCM, and then to provide a theoretical framework of their integration. Lecturers aim also at describing the historical evolution of managerial approaches, in order to deeply understand strategic priorities and business techniques.
Lecturers will also describe how to conduct qualitative and quantitative research in SCM.
The application of different frameworks will be analyzed through industry examples with case studies.
The Ph.D.’s course has therefore the following objectives:
• to offer an opportunity for students to develop a richer understanding of these topics;
• to expose students to research policies, techniques, and approaches in logistics and SCM;
• to build a level of professionalism and awareness of issues, challenges, and opportunities in the global business community;
• to provide Ph.D. students with recent relevant publications.

Modalità d'esame

The evaluation of Ph.D. students is based on 2 assignments:
 
on classroom presentation and discussion of papers (30%)
Each student will be required to present in ‘live’ (Zoom) and discuss one article assigned by the teacher (10 minutes). Students are required to highlight the main links with the theoretical concepts of the course. The article presentation will help students to familiarize with theories and methodological issues (i.e. qualitative and quantitative research methods) in supply chain theory.
 
on a literature review to be written by each student at the end of the course (70%)
Each student will be required to write and present in ‘live’ (Zoom) a literature review related to a specific topic covered in the course. The literature review should be 4-5 pages long, and should be structured as a literature review for an academic paper, that has to be 1) theoretically grounded, 2) methodologically rigorous, 3) managerially relevant, and 4) written in a clear, concise, and compelling style.

The deadline submission and the presentations will be scheduled in a date to be defined.
