MSc(ECom&IComp) Programme


The MSc in Electronic Commerce and Internet Computing programme at the University of Hong Kong was
the first of its kind offered in the Asia Pacific region. Established in 1999, it is a one
-
year full
-
time and two
-
year par
t
-
time programme designed for business executives, policy and decision makers, managers and
information technology professionals to equip them with the latest knowledge and skills about technology
development and business opportunities in electronic commer
ce on the Internet.


Enrolled students could choose from well over
twenty

core and elective modules which provide state
-
of
-
the
-
art knowledge about the fundamentals of e
-
business operation and challenge them to analyse past failures
and future directions o
f the networked economy. The curriculum of such modules is reviewed after every
round of teaching and enhanced for the next by the expert instructors drawn from the University of Hong
Kong and other overseas institutions and from industries.


Opening up
the MSc(ECom&IComp) modules for CPD


Our rigorous effort at maintaining the academic quality of our modules is so well known that the Programme
Office has received, over the years, continuous enquires from our graduates and the public alike about the
possi
bility of enrolment in single modules for continuing and professional development purpose. The Hong
Kong government and professional bodies, as we all know, are also encouraging people to undertake further
studies to develop their potentials and improve on

their productivity. Therefore the Programme Management
Team, after consulting the University, has decided to open up a number of selected MSc(ECom&IComp)
modules for public and graduates enrolment.

Supply chain and e
-
logistics management

Instructor

Dr. Benjamin Yen

Syllabus

The module is designed to prepare you to apply business strategies, an
alytical
methodologies and information technology in supply chain management. Traditionally
industries have focussed on operation evaluation and performance improvement of
mainly the manufacturing process; however, the deficiency of supply chain coordinati
on
results in severe downgrade of business competitiveness. With advent of information
technology, computers not only improve manufacturing operation and management and
also strategic decision
-
making as well. This module focuses on the systems approach to
the planning, analysis, design, development, and evaluation of supply chain and e
-
logistics management.



Introduce principles and approaches to enhance knowledge and experience in
management decision
-
making in business logistics.



Study modern technology t
o reduce cost and improve service in supply chain
management.



Carry out project and research on information access, information coordination,
and information processing for supply chain management in manufacturing and
service industries.

You will not be
learning dry, abstract concepts or theories, but will be given practical
situations and case studies from a number of industries to stimulate your thinking for
solutions in the analysis of your own organisation’s supply chain operation. The learning
conten
ts are designed to be comprehensive and illuminative. If you are merely a
consumer or customer, this study will help make you more perceptive and more
understanding of the constraints and strengths of e
-
commerce.

Objectives

The objectives of this module a
re to provide participants with: (a) an understanding of
the impact of supply chain management and related issues on the success and
profitability of the modern organization; (b) the major challenges faced in implementing
an integrated supply chain managem
ent strategy, as well as approaches for meeting
these challenges; (c) the information technology, business models, and analytical
problem
-
solving skills to develop solutions for a variety of logistics and supply chain
problems; (d) the case study about the

application and the development of logistics and
supply chain technology in Hong Kong industries.

Learning outcomes

On completion of this module, students should be able to:



Develop knowledge of principles, concepts, and methods in the management of
supp
ly chain from a systems perspective.



Develop capabilities for understanding, assessing, and resolving human,
technical, and administrative issues for supply chain management.



Develop managerial leadership and competency in managing a supply chain.



Devel
op capabilities for case study and analysis of contemporary supply chain
management.

and client
-
side technologies); (2) Design and
im
plementation of web applications (rich Internet applications, client
-
side frameworks,
MVC design patterns and libraries, content management systems); (3) Interoperability of
web applications and services (data formats, web APIs, mashups, cloud services); a
nd (4)
Optimizations (data replication and caching, server clustering, traffic analysis, search
engine optimizations).

1.

To introduce the engineering practices for rapid development of maintainable,
extensible, interactive and mission
-
critical we
bsites and web applications.

2.

To provide hands
-
