The program consists of 28 taught courses including core business and supply chain courses, work-integrated learning courses, flexible courses, a one year compulsory industry placement and a business design project. The business design project in final year consolidates this practical experience, theory and your problem-solving skills.
Flexible courses can be selected from a business minor that is different from your major area of study, or a minor from another discipline, or from student electives.
You will study 7 of the compulsory common business core courses plus 1 logistics and supply chain management major course.
You will study the final compulsory common business core course, and focus on your major by studying 7 logistics and supply chain management courses covering transportation and freight logistics, warehousing and distribution, procurement management and global sourcing, business IT and supply chains, retail and service logistics and supply chain analysis and design.
