The Master of Science in Logistics (MSc Log) program is for graduates who want to understand the theoretical and practical aspects of logistics and supply chain management, to enhance business efficiency and advance their own skills development. The program will provide you with the tools to successfully implement supply chain systems to manage the flow of materials and information within and between organisations.

At UOWD, the MSL program is designed to develop your ability to analyse an organisation's supply chain operations, its strengths, weaknesses, structure and performance and to institutionalise logistics systems that maximise competitive advantage in terms of cost optimisation and customer satisfaction. It will help you to understand the implementation of technology for supply chain issues and develop techniques for logistics related decision-making. The program allows you to undertake a specialisation in either operations or supply chain management from grouped electives.
