This honours degree programme will develop the knowledge and skills necessary for a challenging business career in management with a specialism in logistics and supply chain management. In order to achieve this objective the course uses leading edge thinking and learning techniques across a range of business specialist areas within the supply chain management field. Students are exposed to concepts and ideas that will allow them to develop the necessary competences to launch a career in an area that has in recent years significantly heightened its profile within management. Students will also receive extensive exposure to real world logistics through their class work and a paid incompany work placement which is undertaken in the third year of the programme. One of the major themes in the evolution of business over the last decade has been the emergence of logistics and supply chain management as key components of business strategy. Today, logistics and supply chain management is widely recognised as a critical contributor to the competitive competence of firms and of the national economy. Logistics and supply chain management is concerned with the management of the flow of goods and information through the value chain from materials acquisition to final consumption. More simply it has been described as getting the right product, in the right quantity, of the right quality, in the right place, at the right time, for the right customer at the right cost. In achieving all of this, logistics takes place in many of the functions of a business including customer relationship management, forecasting, inventory management, purchasing management, warehouse management, information technology and transport management. Management professionals in logistics and supply chain management functions also work closely with other areas of the business including human resource management, manufacturing, marketing and finance. DIT has been identified as the national centre of excellence in transport and logistics in Ireland with the establishment of the National Institute of Transport and Logistics. You can learn more about logistics at the NITL website (www.nitl.ie).
Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
