Details

An efficient way to advance your career.

Supply chain management extends the study of logistics beyond the boundaries of a single organisation. It places particular emphasis on the interfaces between the ‘chain’ or ‘network’ of enterprises engaged in moving products, services and information - from suppliers through intermediaries to end users and/or consumers.

The overarching framework around which the course content is organised is the supply chain management performance and capability continuum, which has three critical components - namely operational excellence, supply chain integration and collaboration, and virtual supply chains.

Finish your online Graduate Certificate in Supply Chain and Logistics Management in just eight months, thanks to our innovative intensive learning model. Offering six intakes per year, our study periods run for seven weeks each, focusing on one course at a time for fast-tracked, consolidated learning. This format helps you learn, grasp and apply each new concept before beginning the next.

We believe in work-connected learning. That means you can take everything you learn in the virtual classroom to the workforce – straight away. You don’t have to wait to finish your program to start applying your new skills and knowledge.
