Logistics is defined as the procurement, maintenance and punctual transportation of materials to the right place at minimum cost. At the heart of any economy are healthy industrial and service sectors. However, merely producing products without taking into account the process involved is insufficient, as ideally, they should be affordable, efficiently handled, stored, maintained and distributed before being sold. Hence, successful analysis and implementation of logistics services is the key to adding value for customers.

This programme aims to link and synchronise the marketplace, transportation systems, distribution network, as well as the manufacturing processes together effectively to ensure that services meet customer satisfaction. In a nutshell, this programme presents a broad view of logistics acquired through a combination of examinations, projects, coursework, industrial attachments and a dissertation in the final year.

Students learn the relevant academic and vocational logistics management principles, skills and knowledge through innovative teaching and learning methodologies. With this, students are not only able to perform effectively and efficiently within a variety of contemporary logistics environments, but are also properly equipped to face the numerous dynamic challenges in local and global industries.

Assessments

The assessment includes a combination of examinations, projects and assignments. Students will acquire up-to-date vocational skills that are relevant and competitive. This reflects the complex and challenging nature of the accounting, finance and business realms.
