Welcome to MBA in Logistics & Supply Chain Management offered by us via 100% online mode.
There is no organization, person or entity that is not affected by the global logistics and supply chain management. It is one of the largest and fastest-growing areas of business. This area of business is also witnessing significant levels of innovation in process and technology year after year! As companies continue to rely increasingly on the supply chain that has a global footprint, logistics is a critical success factor and if not done well, it can have a severely negative impact on the performance of the business. Conversely, if done well, logistics has a direct positive impact on increasing speed and lowering cost.
At the end of the day, the focus is on getting the product to the customer as soon as possible and with the quality that the customer expects. While simple in the outcome, this process can be utterly complex and full of risks. The involvement of suppliers, logistics companies, warehouses, transport providers, weather and other natural phenomenon, man-made disasters, and a variety of other factors can influence the outcome significantly.
Professionals who are trained in supply chain and logistics advise the management on how to decrease the risks and increase efficiency through automation, management of stakeholders, warehousing and manufacturing optimization, and risk management.
