Hello all you incredible people, here’s your MP Roundup for October 9th, 2021.
Let’s start off with some (one-sided) introductions: my name is Trey (which, I would hope, you already know). I’m a fifth year commerce student at the University of Saskatchewan, where I’m majoring in Supply Chain Management (okay, you caught me, my major is technically Operations Management, but you get the gist).
Throughout my time in my undergrad (thus far), I’ve focused heavily on studying the intersections of global business, society, and supply chains - specifically, I love to think about risks, adaptation, mitigation, and what organizations are doing to prepare for the threats of
Presently, I’m working on my Honours Project (honours thesis, essentially), where I’m planning to look at how climate change is impacting Saskatchewan companies’ supply chains, and what are the most effective methods for mitigating and adapting those supply chains to new environmental situations.
Nevertheless, my interests typically stay somewhere in the realm of global supply chain management crossed with global (in)security. This makes it easy for me to say that I’m intrigued by ‘cyber’/information security, technology, surveillance, terrorism, human rights, and what I deem to be most important, climate change.
