It provides numerous cases to help students build the models for various real projects, analyze performance, and make decisions.

MBGZ08 Project Management in Convention and Exhibition (3 credits)

This course provides students a conceptual introduction to Project Management in Convention and Exhibition, involving organizational context, project selection and portfolio management, leadership and the project manager, scope management, project team building, conflict and negotiation, risk management, cost estimation and budgeting, project scheduling and critical path, resource management, project evaluation and control, project close-out and termination. Real life projects in Convention and Exhibition will be taken as examples. Cases and integrated project exercises will also be combined with the contents.

MBGZ09 Big Data Analytics in Supply Chain (3 credits)

This course is designed to facilitate students the understanding of quantitative data analysis tools with a special focus on big data applications in supply chain management. It will cover regression, classification, clustering, sampling and variable selection methods. In particular, this course aims to encourage students to apply the ideas and methods to solve real problems in the field of business.

MBGZ10 Data Driven Approaches and Applications (3 credits)

Data driven is another quantitative methodology different from analytical modelling. It starts from data, and results from data analytics. This course introduces main application of data driven and some typical problems to be solvable. Furthermore, it provides some analytical methods based on data, including Monte Carlo, and their application cases, limitation and possible solutions.

MBGZ11 Supply Chain Financing (3 credits)

This course is designed to give students the concepts and applications of Supply Chain Financing. To accomplish this, lecture material includes detailed examples, solved questions, and cases studies in: supply chain management and financial performance, supply chain management evolution, supply chain financing innovation in trading, operation management, logistics management, banking and e-business, and risk management in supply chain financing.

MBGZ12 Special Topic in Supply Chain Analysis (3 credits)

This course introduces common analytic models in supply chain management, and enables research students to collect data, build models, solve the problems based on computers, and make final decisions. Specifically, it includes demand forecasting, break-even analysis, material requirement planning, purchasing management, production scheduling, inventory management, distribution and transportation. The methods include mathematical modelling, forecasting model, network analysis, inventory models, statistics, queueing theory, and system simulation. 

MBGZ13 Internet Plus and Supply Chain (3 credits)

With the quick development of internet technology, supply chain business transfers from offline to online, leading to a new business mode. This course enables research students to have some insight of change in supply chain under internet plus, and the new opportunity and challenges resulting from the integration of internet plus and supply chain. Furthermore, it provides some solutions from the perspectives of empirical and mathematical modelling.

MBGZ14 Supply Chain and Enterprise Resource Planning (3 credits)

This course introduces supply chain principles, practices and procedures as applied to a computerized environment of learned in supply chain courses. It includes setup of supply chain system, simulation of purchasing management, sales management, inventory management, inventory accounting, ending business, and integrated training of supply chain management. It enables students to obtain the skill to manage the whole supply chain with ERP, analyze the supply chain and solve the real issues in supply chain.
