A batch of virtual post graduate Diploma in Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management will commence from Monday March 15 at MVIRDC World Trade Center, Mumbai.

 The six-month duration online course, which has now been strengthened with supply chain management, will be held thrice a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in over 80 sessions in the evening from 6-8pm local time.

 The course assumes significance since India’s logistics sector is at an inflection point with growth in e-commerce sector, policy thrust on logistics parks, emergence of dedicated freight corridors and implementation of the Sagarmala project.

 According to the government's planning body - Niti Aayog, jobs in the logistics sector may almost double to 40 million by 2022-23 from about 22 million in 2016.

 Industry professionals with hands-on experience will be the faculty for the course, that includes orientation program, six taught modules each assessed by written examination, industry case studies and project assignment.

 The curriculum will cover in-depth topics such as procurement, storage, transportation, distribution, operations planning, support to company strategy, negotiation, logistics and trade finance, enhancing competitiveness, among others.
