Course Code



The programme is designed to broaden and deepen the knowledge and skill base of graduates of the NMCI/MTU L7 SCM degree. This programme will also appeal to Business, Engineering and IT graduates (L7/L8/L9) who have some experience in Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

Supply chain graduates and their companies have shown particular interest in enhancing their knowledge of issues such as international customs regulations, strategic management of global logistics and supply chain and transport planning management (considering the implications of global disruptor events).

Students gain valuable knowledge and skills in key subject areas, which are relevant to managing global logistics and supply chain networks for indigenous and multinational corporations in the medical device, pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, electronics, food and beverage, energy, sectors; and the third party and fourth-party logistics (3PL, 4PL) providers and service companies that support these sectors. This programme is suited to those with a wide range of backgrounds, from engineering and science to business and the arts; those already in supply chain management careers; and those keen to join this dynamic and rewarding sector.
