The field of Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management is playing an increasingly significant role as businesses and organizations extend their operations across the globe. Therefore, companies are continually looking to employ suitably qualified personnel who can provide the skills necessary to support the progress of rapidly developing supply chains.
The BSc in Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management is a three-year programme designed in line with international standards. The programme aims to provide a high-quality business education with a strong focus on logistics and supply chain management. The curriculum is carefully designed to integrate several core business modules with a range of specialised major modules that focus on topics related to aspects of global logistics and supply chain management.
The interactive mode of online delivery of the lectures allows individuals employed in full-time work to earn a bachelor’s degree while they work. Your geographical location or work-related commitments will no longer prevent you from achieving your desired degree. All modules are primarily delivered by experts based in Europe who are highly qualified in their respective fields.
You will gain understanding of how global logistics and supply chains operate, the challenges involved in managing a business and what makes it successful. You will study a variety of business and global logistics and supply chain subjects such as accounting, economic environment, finance, marketing, organizational behavior, and human resource management as well as specialist global logistics and supply chain modules. The emphasis is on application to global logistics and supply chain organizations.
On completion of the programme you will gain the necessary knowledge and preparedness to undertake various role and responsibilities related to becoming a Supply Chain Manager, Procurement Specialist, Store Manager, Warehouse Manager or an Inventory Planning & Control Specialist.
You will study 9 mandatory modules in Year1 and Year2; followed by 6 mandatory modules in the final year. All classes are delivered interactively and online by international faculty from around the globe. Classes are recorded for future student’s reference.
Each module is allocated five weeks of student efforts. The actual lecturer delivery face-to-face (interactively and online) is during the first 5 days of the five weeks period. The five-days delivery span two weekends (Friday to Sunday from week1 followed by Saturday and Sunday from week2). Assessments take place (interactively and online) at the end of week5. This mode of delivery facilitates minimum disruption for participants in full-time employment.
The BSc (Hons) in Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management is a dual award programme conferred by Emirates Aviation University (EAU) and Coventry University, UK. The EAU award is recognised by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) in Dubai.
