In this connection, supply chain management (SCM) is the new form of business competitive model to tackle the trend. SCM is to manage and integrate customers, suppliers and delivery network with technology in order to provide customers with the products/services in the right quantity, right quality, right place, right time, and lowest cost. As the need for well-trained SCM graduates is increasing, the SCM programme is designed to cater for the long-term need by launching two study streams: Business Logistics and Air Transport.
