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.
All of the units in this course are professionally accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply Australia (CIPS Australia) as part of the Master of Logistics and Supply Chain Management course.
Applicants would normally have completed a relevant bachelor degree or equivalent qualification, or relevant Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma to qualify for admission. A qualification from one of the following disciplines will be considered acceptable: Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Transport, Management, Engineering, Marketing, Business, Computing and IT, Science, Mathematics, Accounting and Commerce.
Applicants who have a degree in another discipline but are working in the logistics industry or want to move into that field will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Applicants who do not have an academic qualification but have at least eight years relevant managerial experience may gain entry to the Graduate Certificate course on a case-by-case basis as determined by the Program Director. There are no requirements however for applicants to have any professional work experience.
