Supply Chain Management

The logistics and supply chain management (SCM) industry is a key pillar of Singapore’s economy. Global companies in new growth sectors – such as aerospace, biomedical sciences, chemical, energy, oil and gas equipment, technology, and high-value collectibles – have chosen Singapore as their key global and regional base in Asia. These global players present new opportunities for logistics and SCM professionals to be deployed and to develop innovative solutions to meet the complex needs. This will drive further demand for logistics and SCM talent.

The Bachelor of Science in Supply Chain Management with Minor is a four-year direct honours programme. Students are required to complete a total of 200 credit units (cu), inclusive of 40 cu of Common Curriculum courses. The Common Curriculum courses are first-year courses designed to hone students’ conceptual and writing abilities along with their communication skills.
