Distance Learning (3 years)
The study of Logistics may not always receive the importance it deserves, but it is being increasingly recognised as an important business function in its own right. Both the academic and business world now accept that there is a need to adopt a more holistic view of varied logistic operations.
Our B.Sc. in Logistics begins by providing an introduction to some of the basic aspects of distribution and logistics and then proceeds to examination of the various elements that make up logistics, detailing its function in an organisation and emphasising its value.
Students familiarize themselves with the diverse and dynamic functions of Logistics as they analyse the various constraints and demands imposed upon today’s local and global business environments.
By the end of the course, successful students gain expertise in the managerial processes involved with the procurement, movement, storage and use of resources throughout the supply chain. At the same time, students complete training in the fundamentals of Management and Marketing, which provides holistic preparation for a career in supply chain management and distribution.

One of our distinguishing features is that at the end of each year of our three-year Bachelor programmes, we award separate certificates: at the end of the first year a Diploma; at the end of the second year an Advanced Diploma; and, finally, at the end of the third year, a Bachelor certificate. This offers students more flexibility and the freedom to start a degree without committing to the entire length of the course.
On completion of Year 1, successful students will be awarded the Diploma in Marketing Management.
On completion of Year 2, successful students will be awarded the Advanced Diploma in Logistics.
Finally, upon completion of Year 3, successful students will be awarded the Bachelor of Science in Logistics.
