TUM and supply chain finance

Be part of the Supply Chain Finance Hub

The crisis due to the Coronavirus continues to keep the world on its heels. It still has an unprecedentedly negative impact on the economy and threatens the survival of many firms – among them: many suppliers. The crisis has shown how fragile the supply chain sometimes is: One stakeholder’s failure can break through an entire supply chain and, in the worst case, put production on hold. Therefore, many managers prefer to act now rather than wait for the actions of politicians.

Corona requires action. Now. But how? What are the strategies for dealing with this crisis and how can companies act to support their suppliers? These are the questions Prof. Dr. David Wuttke, Assistant Professor for Supply Chain Management at the TUM Campus Heilbronn, and his Doctoral Student, Sairam Sriraman will discuss together with seven industry experts.

Supply Chain Finance Hub:

Coping with financial distress caused by the Corona crisis in global supply chains

7 experts, 7 questions, 7 answers: Each expert will give a short presentation on a specific issue that is of particular concern to the economy and its companies in times of the pandemic. A joint panel combines the findings of theory and practice. Learn from the latest research findings and management experiences.

The format will take place completely online on November 16, 2020.

We look forward to your participation!
