Global Value Chain Partnering on the Sustainability Agenda

The course addresses the question of how to rapidly scale sustainable business by building ecosystems. Participants will be updated on the newest approaches to strategic partnering and ecosystems as tools for business development and scaling in global value chains.

Focus is on building effective ecosystems by developing, organizing, governing, and managing complex strategic partnerships within and across organizational and national borders and is targeted at individuals and businesses involved in driving the business developments towards a zero-carbon world.

Course content

We build on classical international management and economics theories and tools combined with innovative new developments in global value chain governance research and practice.

The course will present theories of ecosystems, partnering, global value chains, strategic networks, governance, and international strategy in the context of scaling sustainable business.

The course will feature a combination of theoretical models and practical cases and the course participants will have the opportunity to apply the course material directly to their own business case and get feed-back from the teachers and the group.

The course develops a strategic partnering approach to business development with focus on scaling sustainable business across vertical and horizontal value chain activities.
