ITLS6600: Global Logistics Capstone

This unit serves as the capstone unit for the Global Logistics Specialisation. This unit consolidates, integrates and applies the knowledge and skills that students have gained in the Global Logistics specialisation. Taken in the last semester of study, the unit provides the opportunity to explore authentic, scenario-based global logistics problems and to reinforce and extend competencies in students' area of interest and expertise. The projects are assigned to students based on their experience and professional needs in one or more of the following areas: global distribution strategy, ethical and sustainable logistics and procurement, strategic procurement, supply chain risk analysis and mitigation strategies, city logistics, and supply chain challenges facing Australian and global businesses. Students manage the project investigation and carry it to completion within a specified time period and to a professional standard. Through the project, students identify the problems and existing bottlenecks, explore the potential solutions to these problems, critically analyse the situation, document their progress, communicate findings with their mentor and other students, reflect on their learning, and prepare a formal project report describing the work performed as well as the resulting conclusions and recommendations.
