Diploma in Business Practice (Supply Chain Management)

The Singapore logistics industry contributes to about 9% of Singapore’s GDP, and employs 136,000 Singaporeans.  It is a key driver and enabler for all industries in the Singapore economy.  As one of the world’s key logistics hub, Singapore offers a world-class infrastructure and excellent connectivity for leading industry players and customers in logistics/supply chain management.

As the Singapore economy expands, the need for a higher skilled and qualified workforce has become increasingly important in this knowledge based economy.   The intense economic competition and constant economic restructuring, coupled with rapid technology advancement will make knowledge and skill obsolete quickly.   It is therefore not enough just to be an expert in one discipline; executives need a set of portable skills & knowledge in related business operations to be successful in different business environments.
