Supply chain management

Supply chain management involves managing the flow of materials, information and finances as they move from supplier to manufacturer, to retailer, to the end-consumer.


Undergraduate

Supply chain management deals with the purchase of raw materials, the process of manufacturing the goods, the storage of the goods, and the delivery of the goods. Operating these functions in an effective and efficient way has become critical as businesses face worldwide competition.

Supply chain management is offered as a major in Deakin's Bachelor of Commerce - an internationally recognised and EPAS acccredited business degree.  Deakin is the only Australian university with an EPAS accredited Bachelor of Commerce.
