The minimum time to complete this postgraduate qualification is a year and the maximum time is 4 years.

Supply chain managers are responsible for managing relationships with suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and the final consumer. In this role you will be involved in the production of the product, managing inventory and ensuring that the final product reaches the right customer at the right time. The key purpose of your role is to see that the needs of your business and customers are met.

With the supply chain arena struggling from a lack of suitable and available talent for management positions, companies worldwide are stepping up efforts to recruit qualified and skilled professionals for these roles. According to a survey by Deloitte Consulting, among executives of multinational companies, 71% reported difficulty finding senior leadership for their supply chains.

This qualification will empower you with the competencies (knowledge, insight, skills, values and attitudes) necessary to positively contribute to the management of a modern integrated supply chain.
