Program Overview

Program Description:
Business students, primarily those majoring or with a concentration in supply chain management or international business, will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of supply chain management in the global market through exploration of supply chain and logistics practices of U.S. and Panamanian businesses.

Three hours of academic credit are granted by The University of Kansas upon successful completion of the program. Students will enroll in SCM 400, IBUS 500, or BBA 500: Global Business and Supply Chain in Panama. Course requirements include several pre-trip meetings, most scheduled on campus during the fall semester. The meetings will allow enrolled students to learn about global trade practices, meet representatives from area companies that have operations in Panama, to understand their supply chain strategies and why Panama is part of the strategy. These meetings provide an opportunity for students to meet those with whom they will be sharing the experience in Panama. While in Panama, the group will visit with six or more businesses of varying size and industries in Panama, discussing their supply chain strategy and execution and also visit the ocean port terminals in Panama City and Colón. Additionally, students will visit the Panama Canal, the Foreign Free Trade Zone, and the largest air hub in Central America
