Lead with confidence in a connected, rapidly evolving field

In an increasingly global market, with pressure to reduce costs wherever possible, businesses are looking for people who can go beyond the borders of expectation and make effective, data-driven decisions that improve efficiencies and smooth the path from “we need this” to “how did you do that so quickly?”

RMIT’s online Master of Supply Chain and Logistics Management equips you with the skills to add value to a business immediately and remain invaluable as the business’ needs change.

You’ll hone your expertise in traditional operational capabilities, as well as emerging technologies, environmental and cultural considerations. You’ll also develop the soft skills that are demanded by employers in managing the constant change.

Whether you see a new career opportunity and want to move into this field, or want to upgrade the supply chain skills you already have, RMIT’s experts can help you develop the knowledge and skills to become an expert yourself, and a future leader in this highly rewarding and highly challenging field.

What you will study

100% online, intensive study

As a pioneer in supply chain and logistics management education in Australia, RMIT continues to lead through innovative teaching approaches and research.

Online study at RMIT is intensive, engaging and challenging, delivering you the same internationally-recognised qualification as you would receive studying on-campus.

Our 100 per cent online programs are designed so that you can study anywhere and anytime. Each course is seven weeks long with a clear structure of what needs to be delivered. With six study intakes a year, you can complete a masters in as little as two years, without compromising the coursework or your career.

Assessment

A critical part of delivering high-level coursework online is providing students with a consistent approach to assessment. Students are assessed on how well each of their course learning outcomes are met, in alignment with the overall program learning outcomes.

Course assessments will occur across a seven-week teaching period and are designed to progressively build in weight over time, with each linking back and building on the last.

Examples of common assessments may include group and individual tasks, such as:

  • Quizzes;
  • Case study projects;
  • Research reports;
  • Presentations;
  • Contribution to online discussions; and
  • Collaboration on set tasks or projects.

As many of our students are working full-time and have professional commitments during the week, course assessments are usually due on Sunday or Monday evenings, allowing optimum time over the weekend to finesse for submission.

Rich feedback will be provided to students throughout the teaching period via online forums on practical exercises and by individual consultation.

Work-connected and industry-relevant

Guiding the strategic development of the RMIT College of Business, both nationally and internationally, is an Industry Advisory Board of high-profile executives chaired by Gerhard Vorster, Chief Strategy Officer (former), Deloitte.

Career outlook
