Purpose of the Program

The Master of Supply Chain and Logistics Management program prepares you for a career that involves planning, implementation and execution of customer-responsive and sustainable strategies across the entire value chain. This program allows you to select a range of optional courses to suit your career objectives, preparing you for a globalised world of works. 

In this program, you will have the option of choosing to participate in a business internship program to nurture your operational capabilities and hands-on skills and/or join a study tour to widen your educational experience on a global scale.   You will also be able to develop a specialisation in strategic procurement or maritime transport logistics. 

This program will expose you to a variety of learning experiences and activities, which may include lectures, seminars and tutorials, assignments, field visits, on-site learning, collaborative projects and workshops. Assessments would include major and minor written assignments, conduct and evaluation of case studies, completion of field investigative projects, video development, oral presentations and in-class tests. Some assignments will be completed in groups, while others, individually.  The aim is to provide you the opportunity to learn both in a team environment and independently in a digitally enabled world.

A capstone experience will be provided in OMGT2191 Strategic Operations and Supply Chain Management, which will give you the opportunity to critically reflect on this program’s curriculum. This course syntheses the knowledge and skills gained in the program, promoting their application in discipline related, real-world scenarios, leading to work readiness or further studies.

The program is designed to provide you with career opportunities for entry into various industries, spanning from primary production to manufacturing to shipping, distribution and retailing.  Job functions include supplies and procurement, operations and material handling, freight transport and forwarding, distribution and warehousing.
