The program development reflects a specialist niche market within the greater leadership and management area that reflects the logistics and supply chain sector needs in Australia and its region. The program enrolment requires a commitment by the students’ employer to provide access to live data so that their assessment involves company activity and strategy to ensure that this program is grounded and driven by industry needs.
Supply Chain Management (SCM) involves the management and flow of goods, information and funds within and between companies, from source to consumer. It comes principally as an extension of operations management, which is concerned with optimally allocating resources within the firm, to take in a broader domain of optimization.
The course is designed for those who wish to advance their knowledge and careers in SCM, who may already be working in that sector or in related functions in transport or in SCM functions in any industry. These are people who have at least two years of work experience. It is expected that students will come from retailing, manufacturing, mining, transport, public agencies, defence and primary industry sectors.
To provide the knowledge base to become competent in designing supply chains that are consistent with organisational strategy
