Introduction to Humanitarian Logistics

Hanken School of Economics is offering a 2-weeks online course on Humanitarian Logistics. Participants of the course will learn how to manage the logistics during humanitarian relief programs. In this course you will explore how humanitarian relief can be provided and what logistical concepts and principles underpin humanitarian operations. Together with your peers you will explore how providing assistance to global crises can be delivered effectively and quickly. You will examine the importance of supply chain management and investigate how contextual differences affect the requirements of logistics management during aid operations. The course will be especially beneficial to undergraduate students, who are interested in studying a humanitarian logistics master program. However, everyone with an interest in the complexities, challenges, tools and methods of humanitarian logistics will find the course beneficial.

The course is taught by Diego Vega, Assistant Professor of Supply Chain Management and Social Responsibility, esp. Humanitarian Logistics and Deputy Director of the HUMLOG Institute at Hanken School of Economics, Gyöngyi Kovács, Erkko Professor in Humanitarian Logistics, and founding Director of the HUMLOG Institute, and Graham Heaslip, a Professor in Supply Chain Management and Social Responsibility at Hanken University. While basic access to the course is free for several weeks, learners who want to obtain a verified certificate need to pay an extra fee.
