Course content

The purpose of the Postgraduate Diploma in Logistics and Supply Chain Management (level 8) is to equip you with the skills to be able to manage complex administrative tasks and strategic challenges in the contemporary, and evolving, logistics and supply chain industry.

You will be able to critically evaluate data, qualitative information, and industry trends in order to assess supply chain vulnerabilities and risks, opportunities to reduce cost and improve performance, and to identify, implement, and manage tactics that are innovative and value adding for their enterprise.

Logistics is an innovative industry with constantly emerging business processes changes, enterprise software, tracking-and-reporting technologies, and business models.

The industry is fiercely competitive both at the global scale and at the local domestic scale. Companies that can effectively manage procurement, just-in-time delivery, and relationships with third-party suppliers will be able to control their own costs, score win-win solutions with partners, ensure business continuity, and ultimately develop a core competency that underpins competitive advantage and better prices and service for customers.

For these reasons, trained and skilled logistics and supply chain managers are in demand in New Zealand, in our major export markets (e.g., India, north Asia, SE Asia), and globally.
