Swinburne has partnered with international beverage manufacturer and distributor Coca-Cola Amatil, to co-design and co-deliver Swinburne’s Master of Supply Chain Innovation.

The unique postgraduate course commenced in 2018 and is delivered through Swinburne’s Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship (AGSE).

Throughout 2018, the AGSE has continued to form collaborative partnerships with industry that will prepare graduates for the future of supply chain management.

This partnership builds on the AGSE’s goal of delivering courses that equip students with a sound understanding of the latest industry skills, knowledge and technologies.

Students will work with Coca-Cola Amatil on the Innovative Supply Chain Technologies applied project unit, gaining valuable industry insights from supply chain experts.

They will be tasked with investigating what the company’s operations will look like in the future as new and emerging technologies disrupt the supply chain industry.

Director of the Master of Supply Chain Innovation Dr John Hopkins said partnering with Coca-Cola Amatil places students in the unique position of graduating with experience in a multinational distribution company.

“We are very excited to be working with Coca-Cola Amatil and see this collaboration as a wonderful opportunity for our students to hear directly from industry experts, while learning about contemporary supply chain technologies out in the field.”

Coca-Cola Amatil general manager, logistics in operations, Amanda Cech said the pace of change in technology, coupled with consumer expectations for speedy access to products and services, is having a direct impact on supply chain management.

“We are delighted to partner with Swinburne and offer our real-world, specialist expertise to the future leaders in supply chain management and innovation,” Ms Cech said.
