Details

Gain industry knowledge on a global scale.

The online Master of Supply Chain and Logistics Management is a 2-year (part-time) intensive program that has two key outcomes. First is developing the ability to understand the industry’s best practices at a global level, and the second is to build knowledge and skills to meet today’s requirements as well as prepare for tomorrow’s challenges.

As Supply Chain and Logistics Management (SCLM) is an inherently global industry with a web of interconnected networks, you will examine international case studies as well as trade and logistics. You will build holistic, in-depth skills and knowledge based on global best practices and technological advances impacting the industry.

Developed by experienced academics and global leaders in the field, the program focuses on thinking strategically, making analytical decisions and developing your communication and team-working skills.

When you graduate from RMIT’s online degree in SCLM, you will build agility to adapt to change, a mind that is prepared and flexible, and knowledge that will be sought after worldwide.
