Global Supply Chain and Logistics Management
The Global Supply Chain and Logistics Management (Global SCLM) option is a specialized joint exchange program between the UBC Sauder School of Business, Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and Chinese University of Hong Kong in Shenzhen (CUHK SZ). With increasing demand for graduates trained in supply chain and logistics management, the program leverages the strengths of all three institutions in this area.
Am I the right fit for this option?
You must have a strong interest in global perspectives and business practices, and demonstrate the maturity and capability to engage in an international academic experience. It's recommended that you take COMM 204 during the summer after Year 1 or in Term 1 of Year 2 to explore if the field of logistics and the Global SCLM option is the right choice for you before you apply.

Space in this program is limited to 15 students.
To apply to start the option in September 2018, complete the following application and submit it to the Undergraduate Office (UGO) by 4:00pm on January 5, 2018.
Shortlisted applicants will be asked to submit a video interview to demonstrate their interest and motivation for the program, extracurricular involvement and leadership, and motivation for international experience.

Global Supply Chain and Logistics Management option course requirements
You'll spend the first term of your third year at the Copenhagen Business School, the second term at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Shenzhen, and return to UBC Sauder for your fourth year. Students from all three institutions will complete option core course requirements unique to each partner institution, together in a common cohort.
Please note the sequence of the program is expected to change as of Fall 2018. The first term of third year will be spent at the Copenhagen Business School, the second term at UBC Sauder, and the first term of fourth year will be spent at Chinese University of Hong Kong in Shenzhen.
You must complete the courses in the Global SCLM option in sequential order. If you fail a required option core course on exchange, you may be permitted to substitute an alternate course at the discretion of the Faculty. If you fail two or more option core courses while on exchange, you will be required to withdraw from the option.
