What is a Graduate Diploma in Logistics and Supply Chain Management?
An Australian graduate diploma and a graduate certificate are considered the same thing and are about equivalent to a Bachelor Honours Degree. As such, students who enrol in a graduate diploma have already got a fair bit of work experience and prior learning in their chosen area of study, as well as possibly having already completed higher education, usually a bachelor’s degree. It also prepares you for further studies, such as a master of supply chain management, down the road.
Logistics and supply management is the process of inventory management, transport of goods, operations management and the overall process of how a product becomes a product and get’s to buyers.
A graduate diploma can only be completed with a previously completed Australian or New Zealand qualification that meets the courses entry requirements, which is usually a bachelor degree or diploma in a related subject.
Though course details differ depending on the provider (such as credit points, course structure and course codes), a course in supply chain management will teach a series of core units based around:
- Operations Management
- Project Management
- Decision Making Skills
- Inventory Management
- Career Opportunities
- Transport and Logistics
- Risk Management
- Finance and Budgeting
