Diploma in Logistics and Supply Chain Management


The purpose of the programme is to develop graduates with a wide range of professional, vocational and industry-specific intellectual competencies, knowledge and practical skills, enabling them to critically analyse, interpret and understand logistics and supply chain management principles, processes and procedures. The successful student will be equipped to take informed decisions in the context of a logistics and/or supply chain organisation, to analyse relevant information and to produce innovative responses to existing but often unfamiliar problems. Practical decision-making skills will be facilitated through case studies. An exciting element to this qualification is the work-integrated learning whereby students will gain substantial work-related experience and will be afforded the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills in the workplace context.
