Supply chain management is a critical business competency. It encompasses procurement of materials, processing and distribution of products and services to customers.

In many companies, 80% or more of their turnover is spent outside the organisation. This course helps you become effective in managing this. It’s designed for those who will work within supply chain management. It’s also suitable for anyone with a background in support functions such as sales, maintenance, finance and marketing.

This course will cover the latest logistics requirements, for example:

  • the rise of sales through ecommerce also requires accurate demand and supply forecast from logistics area.

This course is delivered in partnership by the Department of Design, Manufacture & Engineering Management, and the Department of Management Science. This collaboration between engineering and business benefits from the combination of technical and organisational expertise.
