Summer Abroad

YorkU Summer Abroad Course Offering (Beijing, China) on Supply Chain Management

The School of Administrative Studies [SAS] will be offering ADMS 4335 and ADMS 4336 (Supply Chain Management: Theory and Practice I & II) under the YorkU Summer Abroad program starting in Summer 2015, jointly with the University of International Business and Economics [UIBE, Beijing, China]. Counting towards six (6) credits at York, the course will be team taught by Dr. Adriano Solis of SAS and Dr. Qi Yinan of the UIBE Business School.

For Summer 2015, this YorkU Summer Abroad course offering will include three weeks at UIBE in Beijing (from June 29 through July 18) and two weeks at York (from July 27 through August 8). This includes a one-week period (June 29 - July 5) of socio-cultural visits in the Beijing area. There will be a minimum of 24 contact hours consisting of onsite briefings and observation tours at manufacturing plants and/or service facilities both in the Beijing and Greater Toronto/Ontario areas. By way of these plant/facility tours, students will have the opportunity not only to observe SCM in practice, but also to critically compare SCM practices on two continents across the Pacific and identify similarities and differences in those practices.

Course prerequisite for ADMS 4335 is ADMS 3330 (Quantitative Methods II). [Students who have completed both ADMS 2320 and ADMS 3331 also satisfy the course prerequisite.]

York University students participating in the course will be provided accommodations free-of-charge by UIBE during the three weeks in Beijing. Approved applicants may apply for a $500 financial support from York International. Those who are also LA&PS students may apply for an additional $500 LA&PS Study Abroad Award. Further information, including the application process, can be found at York International.
