This course will quickly upgrade your ability to innovate across procurement, logistics and supply chain management roles.

In as little as six months you can earn a globally recognised Graduate Certificate of Supply Chain Innovation with essential leadership and management skills and a core understanding of supply chain management competencies.

You’ll also develop an understanding of the complex challenges facing today’s supply chain professionals, and how to formulate your own solutions to these challenges.

Hone your ability to analyse supply chains across local and global contexts, to develop integrated systems for logistics operations, and to harness the value of digital technologies for competitive advantage.

Benefit from a course co-designed and co-delivered with industry professionals such as Pitcher Partners, The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILTA), and Vative. You’ll engage directly with experienced industry leaders and learn using real-world insights and business cases.

Valuable external accreditations embedded into this course include the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt – Certificate of Knowledge, and GS1 Academic Certificate.

Depending on your previous work experience, you may not need an undergraduate degree to enter this course. This course can also provide an alternative entry into the Master of Supply Chain Innovation.

Graduate outcomes could lead to roles in supply chain management, procurement and logistics management.
