Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Outline

Outline

Logistics and supply chain professionals manage the supply of goods and services from the supplier to the customer.

Today’s supply chain networks go beyond traditional functions, providing advanced distribution methods that include sustainable practices and innovative technologies for improved efficiency and resilience. Logistics and supply chain professionals are pivotal to navigating network disruptions and fostering sustainable solutions.

In this major, you’ll learn foundations and techniques of supply chain management, purchasing, procurement and systems analysis and design. You’ll gain experience in project and operations management, and look at strategic procurement issues such as competitive conduct, strategy, logistics, management, and sustainable practices to reduce the environmental impacts from logistics and supply chain management.

Supply chain digitalisation and demand-planning are increasingly important in this fast-evolving industry, and this course enables you to build solid expertise in both areas. You’ll also develop valuable skills in supply chain optimisation through the use of innovative simulation technologies.

Globally, the demand for professionals with expertise in logistics and supply chain management is high, with opportunities to work internationally for multinational corporations and logistics firms. You could also increase your career options with study in a complementary area. For example, expertise in automation, blockchain technologies and big data is increasingly desired in supply chain management.
