Our courses

ITLS is pleased to announce a new line up for our postgraduate coursework management programs, commencing in 2014. We will continue to offer our current Masters, Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate courses, however, from 2014 we will offer a broader range of units, with refreshed curricula to reflect the latest research and developments in industry (nationally and internationally), and the opportunity to focus on one or more of the following areas of management: transport planning, logistics and supply chain, infrastructure, ports and maritime logistics, and aviation. Our courses are taught by leading academic experts in these fields, and ensure industry relevance through presentations from industry practitioners, practical case studies and site visits. We offer our best students the opportunity to gain hands on industry experience through an industry placement unit of study and the opportunity to participate in our highly successful Graduate Work Placement Program.
