This two-week course is comprised of lectures, syndicate work, and student presentations. Due to the huge amount of information, 80% of the course consists on central presentations/lectures held by supporting speakers. The syndicate work consists on analysis of the main logistic doctrines, discussions and back briefings having “understanding of the doctrine” as the main objective.
