The Institute for Logistics and Supply Chain Management at Victoria University is partnering with GS1 Australia to provide opportunities to study business logistics.

This Victoria University course is for people wanting to learn logistics and supply chain management at a strategic level. An intensive and dynamic program will enable students to study business logistics within one year through:

  • minimal time off the job 
  • use of engaging learning resources 
  • case-studies and problem analysis 
  • use of GS1 Australia’s supply chain simulation facility 
  • access to ongoing professional facilitators 
  • work-based projects to deliver value to their employer 
  • mentoring by GS1 industry leaders.
CIO at GS1 Australia, Steven Pereira, has worked with the Institute for Logistics and Supply Chain Management to create the course, and notes that investing in a quality, national qualification was the key to becoming tomorrow’s supply chain professional. He says businesses should consider that by up-skilling their employees through this program, they would improve their supply chain operations.

Students of the logistics and supply chain management course can opt to complete a full Diploma of Logistics, or study an individual study unit with the intention of completing the diploma over time. Successful completion of the Diploma will enable the student to articulate towards a Bachelor of Business Degree.

The course, which will be held at GS1 Australia’s Melbourne Office, is designed for logistics professionals with at least three years of work experience in logistics, warehousing, purchasing/procurement, manufacturing, order processing, transportation or similar activities. Eligible applicants may also be able to source government assistance.

There are no formal entry requirements for entry but applicants must be able to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Institute for Logistics and Supply Chain Management that they are capable of successfully completing the course.
