The Applied Logistics Programme was designed to meet the need for transport education from start to finish, for anyone involved in local or international production and handling of goods and services. During the first two years of the programme, the foundations and bases of the Supply Chain are being built. The third year of the curriculum extends this approach further and gives students the opportunity to focus on one of the three optional, specialized areas where they could best implement their expertise in Supply Chain issues.
