This program is aimed at imparting specialist knowledge and buildingcompetency-based skillsets in the area of Logistics and Supply Chain Management. The Indian logistics sector in the last decade has shown remarkable growth, improving its Logistics Performance Index rank from 54 in 2014 to 35th presently. Improved infrastructure, technological advancements and regulations and policy boost in the form of GST, has further led to the rise of this sector, impacting every industry ranging from manufacturing, services and Ecommerce.

With the recent announcement of National Logistics Policy, the organized Logistics sector requires best talent to be trained and retained but is facing significant skills shortages as new recruits lack the technical skills for 21st century roles.On the other hand, many academic courses, currently offered in this domain, are struggling to keep pace and to develop the practical skillsets required, for closer alignment between businesses and Higher Education University.Contrary to the general perception that logistics is a low-skilled industry, this course creates an awareness for the diversity of the roles and the career paths available to the students
