Course Description

This programme aims to provide learners with wide ranging intellectual competencies and practical skills in the acquisition, interpretation and understanding of the logistics management principles. Upon completion, the learner would be able to take decisions in the context of a logistics organization, to analyze relevant information, and produce innovative responses to concrete but often unfamiliar problems in the world of logistics.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES The programme is designed to provide the learner with insight into the micro- and macro-economic environment in which logistics companies function. Furthermore, it will also provide the learner knowledge about general management principles, and specific logistic management principles. Practical decision making skills will be facilitated by means of case study material which requires a critical situation analysis, the selection and interpretation of relevant information and the implementation of decisions.

Learners will participate in teamwork activities, in unpredictable contexts, with various role players, including professional and administrative of the logistics profession, as well as people on grass roots level. Upon completion the learner will be able to demonstrate a sensitivity to different communities and a sensitivity for the social and cultural differences and needs, particularly with respects to the distribution of goods within the communities.
