    Why choose Supply Chain Management?

    From production line to store shelf, a practical understanding of how to efficiently manage the resources of an organisation is invaluable and describes the essence of supply chain management.

    From being buried in the earth to becoming the hot chips on your plate, the average potato undergoes quite a journey. That passage - from the ground, to the factory, distributor, wholesaler, retailer and customer - is an example of a supply chain. The more efficient the supply chain, the better for business.

    Companies prosper by using supply chain management to make their operations more efficient, and therefore more profitable and sustainable. Students learn about integrating a company's internal departments, such as marketing, manufacturing and procurement, as well as going outside the company boundaries to create a smooth chain from raw-goods' suppliers, right through production and distribution to retailers and customers.
