Do you en­vis­age the fu­ture of sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics cour­ses?

Cargo Talk - - Academy -

The fu­ture looks very promis­ing for sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics cour­ses, as they are be­ing recog­nised as crit­i­cal func­tional ar­eas for busi­ness com­petive­ness in In­dia. The trends are vis­i­ble in in­creased re­quests for pro­grammes from our mem­ber com­pa­nies and uni­ver­si­ties, col­leges that are in­clud­ing lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain func­tions as a spe­cial­i­sa­tion, in ad­di­tion to tra­di­tional mar­ket­ing, hu­man resources, fi­nance, op­er­a­tions and sys­tems func­tions. More im­por­tant, the on­go­ing growth of the lo­gis­tics sec­tor and de­mand for qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als would drive the de­mand for th­ese cour­ses.

Our re­cent ini­tia­tive is the In­sti­tute to Industry (I2I) plat­form that aims at con­nect­ing de­serv­ing stu­dents with industry men­tors to de­velop a syn­er­getic ef­fect. With in­puts from fo­cused com­mit­tees, coun­cils and aca­demic al­liances, we are mov­ing to­wards align­ing course­work with cur­rent sec­tor skill needs. About 80 to 90 per cent of the lo­gis­tics sec­tor is un­or­gan­ised and the speed of its trans­for­ma­tion as­cer­tains the fu­ture of lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain cour­ses.
