The range of units within this Diploma will give a good overall view of the world of business and a range of areas relevant to the logistics industry.
Students will be able to see the links between the two areas and understand how they work together and how reliant they are on each other to ensure a company is successful. The units will allow students to consider their options for further study and then progress onto either business or logistics based undergraduate degrees whilst having given them a flavour of how both elements work together.
The ungraded units have been selected to provide underpinning skills which will support academic study but will also provide students with relevant skills to continue onto study in either logistics or business degrees.
