The Bachelor of Logistics course prepares you to confront the challenges of the globalisation in operations, logistics management and supply chain professions. The course's well-grounded approach will develop skills and new knowledge in order that you can deal with specialised logistics and supply chain matters. Accordingly, you will be well placed to deal with the management of operational problems in contemporary global and regional markets. Success for a logistics professional is therefore the capability to identify, understand and, wherever possible, reduce uncertainty, variability and constraints – that is complexity; within the risk challenged environment of an organisations supply chains and logistics.
Furthermore, the Bachelor of Logistics course assists workforce adaptation in the changing global economy. As logistics and supply chains becomes more reliant on data and information, so jobs in the sector will change. Through providing a course with a focus on planning, analysis and human resources, you will be better equipped to respond to workplace change.
