{subtext=Advanced Diploma in Logistics, university=UJ, page_title=Advanced Diploma in Logistics, description=

The purpose of the Advanced Diploma in Logistics is to provide both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the field of logistics management for prospective students who are middle managers or aspire towards middle management so that they can apply the principles of logistics management in their working environment.

To this end, the programme makes provision for the development of knowledge and applied competence related to procurement, logistics processes and practices, project management, logistics research, global supply management and quantitative techniques.

The inclusion of research methodology and a research project module, as well as a practical simulation module, offers students the opportunity to balance theory, research and practical application in their learning experience. The practical simulation module is a customised module with gamification elements in which students will be required to apply their acquired theoretical knowledge to current industry-related challenges.

The exit level outcomes of the AdvDip (Logistics) programme are aligned with the learning outcomes required on Level 7 of the NQF as students are required to apply theoretical knowledge to complex problems and to present such application as a well-structured argument using academic discourse. Each module in the AdvDip (Logistics) programme contributes towards achieving Level 7’s required learning outcomes as students are expected to demonstrate an ability to:

  • Integrate knowledge of the central areas of one or more fields.
  • Identify, analyse, evaluate, critically reflect on and address complex problems.
  • Manage processes in unfamiliar and variable contexts.
  • Develop their own ideas and express them using appropriate academic, professional or occupational discourse.
