Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements
Ordinary Bachelor degree in Supply Chain or equivalent, at grade H2.2 or higher. (Examples of equivalence: a degree holder in business or engineering disciplines with experience in logistics/supply chain management in the industry). Suitably qualified applicants who have been out of the work environment for a number of years due to childcare or other caring obligations and have a previous history of employment but may require upskilling, reskilling or cross-skilling to transition back to the workforce are most welcome. Applicants will also be considered under MTU’s well-established RPL process.

What is RPL?
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is when formal recognition is given for what you already know prior to starting on a programme or module. With recognition of prior learning the focus is on learning and not on experience as such. You can apply for RPL in any MTU accredited programme or module. Programmes which are accredited by professional bodies or any external awarding bodies may have their own procedures for RPL which you should refer to.

Overview
The programme is designed to broaden and deepen the knowledge and skill base of graduates of the NMCI/MTU L7 SCM degree. This programme will also appeal to Business, Engineering and IT graduates (L7/L8/L9) who have some experience in Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

Supply chain graduates and their companies have shown particular interest in enhancing their knowledge of issues such as international customs regulations, strategic management of global logistics and supply chain and transport planning management (considering the implications of disruptor events such as Brexit and COVID-19).

Students gain valuable knowledge and skills in key subject areas, which are relevant to managing global logistics and supply chain networks for indigenous and multinational corporations in the medical device, pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, electronics, energy, sectors; and the third party and fourth-party logistics (3PL, 4PL) providers and service companies that support these sectors. This programme is suited to those with a wide range of backgrounds, from engineering and science to business and the arts; those already in supply chain management careers; and those keen to join this dynamic and rewarding sector.
