The Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies in the University of Sydney Business School is an Australian Key Centre of Excellence and a world class research institute with strong industry links and a key role in developing innovative ideas in logistics, supply chain and transportation policy and professional practice (sydney.edu.au/business/itls). Our programs focus on policy, strategic planning, and management and operations, developing specialist skills in: applying concepts, techniques and principles that underlie logistics, supply chain and transport management; understanding the relationships between business processes within and between organisations; using systems approaches to solve business problems; understanding the relationships between government agencies and the private sector in the provision, financing, operation and maintenance of transport networks; using contemporary modelling techniques and data collection processes to solve problems and managing the impacts of future trends in logistics, supply chain and transportation. Our programs are structured so that students can choose to focus on one key area of logistics and/or transport management: aviation management; infrastructure management; supply chain management; ports and maritime logistics; or transport planning and management. We provide our students with connections to industry through practical case studies, presentations from logistics and transport professionals, site visits and the opportunity to undertake work placements with our industry partners.
