Subject outline

In Procurement and Supply Chain Management, you will be introduced to the theory and practice of supply chain management and its implications for strategic and operational business decisions.

Working independently and working together with other students, both on-line and face-to-face, you will learn about supply chain management through solving business problems, and develop the ethical, critical thinking and interpersonal skills required to understand, analyse, and improve supply chain operations of businesses, and add sustainable value to any organisation.
