Applicants for this course should have a minimum IELTS (Academic Version) English Proficiency of 6 overall (or equivalent) with nothing less than 6 in each component.

You’ll acquire the wide-ranging knowledge and skills you need to function as an effective professional, in a national and international context.

This course is a business honours degree with a major specialisation in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. It consists of three strands: Logistics and Supply Chain Management (SCM), Business Management, and Information Management.

To win in today’s marketplace, companies must continuously improve productivity, while lowering costs, and bringing quality products to market quicker than ever before. Innovative and effective SCM is key to gaining competitive advantage, reducing costs and making firms more profitable.

The course will introduce you to business and management, with a focus on the function of the supply chain and develop your ability to apply SCM and business processes and functions to actual logistics and SCM scenarios. It will also introduce you to the basic concepts and functional areas of SCM and to place these in the overall context of the strategic objectives of the organisation.

You’ll also develop strong technical competence and skill in the logistics, information technology and management areas, and raise your knowledge and competence in logistics and SCM to the level of strategic decision-making.

As a graduate of the course, the opportunities that have been open to me during my four years have been numerous and have allowed me to develop a business concept from a first-year assignment into a start-up business. The internship in Year 3 also offers students the opportunity to gain real and relevant experience in an organisational environment.
My degree widened the range of jobs I could apply for and I got a job straightaway as an inventory analyst in Unilever Ireland. I am currently back undertaking PhD research using simulation and optimisation technologies in supply-chain management.
When I graduated, I started working as a logistics administrator in Independent Express Cargo, where I did my work experience as a part of my degree. Besides giving the specialist knowledge and skills desired by modern companies, the course has the advantage of creating opportunities to establish career links.

On graduation, you may proceed to postgraduate studies leading to the award of MSc, MPhil or PhD at research institutes and universities worldwide.
