Global Logistics & International Trade
This course builds on various subject areas including Operations Management, Economics and International Business. International Logistics in a global context, is the set of processes required to strategically manage materials and product flows from suppliers through to the final customer in order to achieve competitive advantage.
This course looks at the theoretical background of logistics and considers its practical perspectives from an international trade perspective. It considers how effective logistics and procurement systems can become key business enablers. The course also considers how international supply chains must form a significant element of the strategy of any organisation operating on a global basis.
This exciting area is and will remain a significant part of business in the future, providing an infrastructure for competitive advantage – it will be particularly relevant to those wishing to work internationally – both within the supply chain process, and those needing to understand its importance from a strategic point of view.
To apply for the course you must either be enrolled in a bachelor's degree, have a bachelor's degree or have passed a qualifying entry examination.
