Supply chain and logistics

An organisation’s supply chain is responsible for the journey of its products or services to the end consumer.  Those responsible for the supply chain function oversee the interdependencies of people, resources, and information, and are tasked with improving efficiency, quality, and cost management. 

Those working in supply chain may be involved in several or all parts of the supply chain discipline including strategy, product lifecycle management, sourcing and procurement, manufacturing and operations, planning, and logistics and distribution.

It takes continuous innovation and optimisation to operate a successful supply chain management system, and those studying this field will gain a broad understanding of the how they can make a significant impact to organisational success through this complex and diverse field.

About the faculty

Supply Chain and Logistics programmes are run out of two centres - the Centre for Business and Enterprise, and the Centre for Trades.

Centre for Business and Enterprise

To remain competitive, business models and people need to adapt to the changing world. Today’s employers are looking for more than just a qualification. They are also looking for specific attributes – values, behaviours and skills. This is where Wintec's Centre for Business and Enterprise is educating people with the skills and attributes needed not just for today, but for tomorrow's world.

The Centre for Business and Enterprise (CBE) has strong links with employers through their employer partnerships and advisory groups. Staff are highly qualified and are represented in many professional bodies, like CAANZ, CPA, CFA, AAPNZ and HRINZ. They can help you get involved with these organisations too. Depending on your programme of study you may have opportunities for work experience through visits to work places and through projects and internships for businesses and community groups. Events are also available where you can meet employers. 

The labour market in New Zealand is following a global trend: skilled workers will be in strong demand for years to come. We take pride in giving you the applied skills employers want. Those skills will make you stand out.
