Master of Logistics Management (MLogMan)
|Credit Points Required||60|
The Master of Logistics Management has been revised for students commencing from 2014. Continuing students who commenced study prior to 2014, should refer to the information for FC067 Master of Logistics Management on the Postgraduate Coursework Programs for Continuing Students Only (Discontinued Programs) page.
The Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies in the University of Sydney Business School is an Australian Key Centre of Excellence and world class research institute with strong industry links and a key role in developing innovative ideas in logistics and supply chain management policy (sydney.edu.au/business/itls). Our programs focus on management and operations, developing specialist skills in: applying the concepts, techniques and principles that underlie logistics and supply chain management; understanding the relationships between business processes within and between organisations; using systems approaches to solve business problems; and managing the impact of current and future trends in logistics management on business processes.
The Master of Logistics Management can be packaged with the Master of Commerce, such that the student can complete both degrees back-to-back in 2.25 years, with 50% credit being granted in the Master of Commerce (normally 2 years) for the first Master’s. A student undertaking the Master of Logistics Management can apply for a conditional offer for the Master Commerce during their second semester of study and thus be able to seek a visa extension to cover the year of study required to complete the Master of Commerce.
