Logistics and Supply Chain Management
What is logistics and supply chain management?
The logistics and supply chain management major focuses on the principles of managing a supply chain in an enterprise (business or not-for-profit). Students gain an understanding of key factors affecting the operations in a supply chain and are eventually able to both analyse and design supply chain processes. At present, this area of study is in high demand by employers, as many industries require graduates with both specific logistics and supply chain management knowledge and the general transferable skills gained within the Bachelor of Business.
