What You Will Learn

As consumers, we purchase products from all over the world. But have you ever stopped to ponder how global trade operates and how cargo is transported worldwide?

The Diploma in Supply Chain Management (DSCM) will equip you with the knowledge of processes and practicalities behind the management and movement of products from all over the world, ranging from tiny chocolate bars to top-of-the-range cars.

Through this programme, you will gain knowledge about the different supply chain functions that involve suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers in the increasingly connected global marketplace. With the highly sought-after skills developed, you will be able to efficiently manage the movement of goods, information and finances along the entire supply chain.

This programme also covers the use of digitalisation in supply chain and technologies typically used to manage and increase productivity.

You will gain skills and knowledge through up-to-date learning materials and pedagogies, advanced laboratories and projects from the industry or from RP Centre of Innovation for Supply Chain Management. In addition, you will be equipped with valuable real-world experience through local and overseas industry attachments, preparing you for opportunities with prominent organisations such as Apple, Coca-Cola, DHL, McDonald’s, Nike, Samsung, or UPS.

It is fulfilling for me to be able to apply the skills and knowledge I have gained from the DSCM programme at my daily work. On top of that, RP encouraged me to develop a passion for learning and played a huge part in my decision to further my studies by completing RP’s Specialist Diploma in Supply Chain Management.
