In today’s globalised and competitive business environment, there are ever-rising customer expectations and an increasingly complex market environment. So, there is a high demand for trained professionals in every successful business to help identify, capture and manage modern business and logistics opportunities. With logistics as an engine and entrepreneurial skills as the value driver for modern enterprises and successful business models, this scheme provides students with the know-how and know-why in the various areas of business processes, information flows, organisational structure, information systems, logistics systems, facility design, supply chain management, and operations management. It also equips our graduates with essential management and information technology skills that are critical for the effective design, planning, and operation of enterprises in the highly competitive omni-channel environment.
