The Graduate Certificate in Supply Chain and Operations Management is a specialist program designed to equip students with deeper knowledge and training in supply chain and operations management. The subjects in this course adopt a practice-based approach with a focus on the application of supply chain and operations management theories, frameworks and tools in the daily operation of a supply chain. Another feature of this course is its focus on the latest developments and ‘best practices’ of contemporary topics, including sustainable supply chain and operations management, supply chain risk management, and emerging supply chain technologies (e.g., Blockchain, Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence).
Subjects are taught by the leading faculty in the Department of Management and Marketing. Through real-world examples and case studies, students in this course will be offered ample opportunities to learn the best supply chain and operations practices in a broad range of industries. The knowledge gained in this course will not only prepare students in pursuing an exciting career in supply chain and operations management but also assist them in addressing complex supply chain and operations challenges in today’s uncertain, interconnected business environments.
The course requires completion of 50 credit points of study, comprising four subjects in areas of supply chain management, operations and process management, project management, and global value chains. These subjects are offered through traditional classroom teaching during normal semesters. As a specialist certificate, this course is offered as a standalone* qualification, or can be taken as a concurrent certificate with the Master of Management (suite) and Master of International Business programs. It is also available to students admitted to other graduate programs at the University.
*International students are unable to take this program as a standalone course, it must be taken concurrently, in conjunction with a masters program.
