Logistics and supply chain management represent a field that has been criticised for not having an own theory, and theory development as well as borrowing theories from other disciplines remain important in this field.The aim of this course is to further the understanding for the application of different strategies and theories to supply chain management. The focus is on the discussion of different strategies for different contexts and industries, and on discussing theoretical frameworks and -concepts relative to particular managerial problems.

The core areas of the course are:
1. Strategy and organisation of companies in the context of a supply chain
2. Interorganisational relations in a supply chain
3. Work with theoretical principles in relation to different contexts

Supply chains are exposed to a variety of risks that may result in supply chain disruptions. This course focuses on the management of such risks, in order to make supply chains more resilient. The course contains risk management, supply chain resilience, but also theories from criminology that are useful in a logistics and supply chain context. The course aims to provide a basis for professional analysis and research on risk and security management in logistics and supply chain management, including:

  • Theories and methods of risk and security management with regard to risk, threat and vulnerability;
  • Risk management with risk analysis and risk assessment and management of vulnerabilities in customer and supplier relationships, infrastructure as well as freight and passenger flows
  • Analysis of how environmental changes affect flows in the supply chain (including globalization, outsourcing, consolidation, regionalization, customer requirements, legislation, e-commerce, international terrorism and demographic change) with regards to demand on security
  • Preventive security at different levels, related to accidents, disasters, and genuine uncertainty (eg asymmetric information), through risk sharing, risk avoidance, risk reduction and risk transfer
  • Environmentally sustainable transport flows, international relations and social segregation in the transportation of a vulnerability perspective
  • Effective methods to increase supply chain resilience

Kursens syfte är att stöda skrivandet av magisteravhandling i huvudämnet. Under kursen får du individuell handledning för att utarbeta din avhandling och presenterar ditt forskningsprojekt muntligt och skriftligt i studerandegrupp där du får tilläggshandledning och kommenterar andras projekt.

Under period 2 (hösten 2017) fokuserar studeranden på att hitta sitt forskningstema för avhandlingen. Studeranden bör träffa examinatorn (Ira Haavisto) 2 gånger under period 2. En doodle där studeranden kan boka träffar med examinatorn kommer upp här på hemsidan sista veckan i September. Seminarieträffar äger rum våren 2018, schemat för dessa kommer upp här på hemsidan i slutet på december.

The overall aim of the course is immerse students in questions related to social and environmental responsibility by using, analysing and solving real-world problems provided by case organizations. The students will form groups of 3-4 persons and work with a project for an organisation.

The aim of the course is to give an in-depth understanding and overview of the current state and contribution of Nordic CSR and Sustainability
research. It brings together Nordic faculty from different business fields (e.g. marketing, finance, management and organization, business
and society, supply chain management and accounting), as well as from other disciplines (e.g. political science, behavioral economics,
development economics, sociology, and human geography) to emphasize the cross-disciplinary nature of the subject. 

It also aims to create a space for student collaboration and discussion around the possibilities of research collaboration across the Nordic region. The course is split into three modules given at three different Nordic business schools. The initiative for the course is grounded in the UN Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME), with the aim to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought
leadership globally.
