This course has been tailored specifically to produce future leaders in the emerging industry of Logistics and Supply Chain, and to address the challenging demands of the global economy.
 

As companies have begun to invest significantly in the Logistics and Supply Chain area, demand for professionals across Australia and internationally has also grown. This course is designed for graduates, skilled practitioners and professionals from diverse disciplinary backgrounds who work in the areas of manufacturing, distribution, service and related sectors. It provides graduates with an advanced understanding of principles, practice and skills in the areas of logistics and supply chain management that are relevant to related industries. It also provides students with the opportunity to develop and apply those skills through the integration and application of knowledge to examine and evaluate case studies.
