The Logistics and Supply Chain Management specialisation is intended for students wishing to develop careers in the fields of logistics and supply chain management, as well as those currently practising in these areas. The emphasis of the specialisation is on the operations and logistics functions in companies that source, produce, distribute and market nationally and internationally. You will be provided with a solid grounding in the concepts, techniques and principles that underlie logistics and supply chain management and will discuss these issues from a managerial, practice-oriented perspective.
To meet requirements for this specialisation in the Master's degree, a candidate completes five units of study (30 credit points), comprising:
