Purpose of the Program

This program prepares you to solve business problems in the global marketplace and understand complexity in operations, logistics and  supply chain industries. A broad-based curriculum in the program covers the design and management of supply chain practices such as inventory planning, procurement, production operations, transportation, distribution, warehousing, retail services, global logistics and supply chain technologies.

The program provides opportunities to apply and consolidate your knowledge and skills in a practical workplace setting during the third year of the program. Upon completion of your practical placement, you will employ the tools and experiences gained to innovate, design and solve business-related problems in two business design project courses.

In the final year of the program the capstone courses OMGT2198 Supply Chain Management Strategy, OMGT2199 Operations Management, BUSM4490 Logistics and Supply Chain Management Business Design Project 1 and BUSM4491 Logistics and Supply Chain Management Business Design 2 will give you the opportunity to critically reflect on and consolidate what you have learnt. This capstone experience will integrate the knowledge and skills gained in this program and apply them in discipline related real-world situations.

You will experience a variety of learning approaches that may include: lectures, tutorials, assignments, site-visits, industrial guest lectures, collaborative projects and activities. Assessment may include examinations, essays, reports, oral presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.

This program promotes the application of the curriculum in logistics and supply chain scenarios leading to work readiness or entry to graduate studies. The program will prepare you to work as a professional in a number of industrial sectors: aviation, automobile, computing, construction, manufacturing, mining, retailing, shipping, global trading, transport, distribution and warehousing.  Job functions include procurement, inventory planning, operations management, operations research, and event organisations in both private and public sectors.
