The Master of Supply Chain Innovation uniquely combines key elements of supply chain management, innovation and business information systems to enable graduates to improve today’s supply chains and to equip them for the changing needs of the industry.
As competition continues between global supply chains in response to customer demand volatility and increasing customer expectations, supply chain managers need to be increasingly innovative in order to gain competitive advantage. Having appropriately skilled people, who are equipped to make the right decisions, is essential. This course is designed to assist students to transition into strategic management roles.
The course includes innovation, design thinking, supply chain management, logistics, lean six sigma methodologies and big data analytics. It has a strong focus on business improvement and is designed to equip students with the capacity to apply innovative thinking to supply chain networks.

^ The Graduate Diploma of Supply Chain Innovation is available as an exit award only. (Not available by Admission)
