Summary

Overview

This one-year graduate diploma programme has been designed for graduates of business and nonbusiness disciplines in order to equip them with the necessary knowledge and competencies in Supply Chain Management and business. Supply Chain Management is concerned with the management of the flow of goods and information through the value chain, from materials acquisition to final consumption. Put more simply, SCM is about being right: it is about getting the right product, in the right quantity, at the right quality, in the right place at the right time, for the right consumer at the right cost. In achieving all of this, supply chain management takes on many of the functions of a business including: forecasting, inventory management, purchasing management, warehouse management, information technology and transport management. Management professionals in logistics and supply chain management functions also work closely with other areas of the business including human resource management, manufacturing, marketing and finance.
