Global Sustainable Supply Chain Management

The goal of the programme is to equip industry professionals/adult learners with the skills needed to lead organisations, from indigenous to large multi-nationals, towards sustainable competitiveness through creative and effective management of end-to-end supply networks.

These Masters Diploma programme is as a consequence of extensive consultation with sectoral stakeholders. This proposed embedded Post Graduate Diploma (60 Credits) programme has successfully secured funding under the Human Capital Investment (HCI) scheme. The programme is designed to develop the learners’ know-how and skills range, to allow them to demonstrate a mastery of a range of complex and specialised focused areas across the full spectrum of global sustainable supply chain management.

The learner will develop the capacity to apply a standardised technique of enquiry to a wide range of activities and operational contexts, internally in their organisations/corporations, and externally with the upstream supply base/outsourced partners, and the downstream customer base/original manufacturer base/logistics 3PL/4PL provider base. The learner will also develop the skill to synthesise the ethical, business and social aspects of communicating internationally across the entire supply chain spectrum, while cognisant of global ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) standards.

Collectively, the programme equips the learner with the range of skills, and develops their higher order thinking.
