The fully-funded certificate will focus on developing an understanding of the processes and techniques for developing operations strategy and managing operations and supply chain activities across a wide range of industries.
The online format and blended-learning delivery of the programme is specifically designed to enable flexible learning. The programme will provide the following upskilling elements:
- Operations Management

- Contemporary and Emerging Issues in Operations and Supply Chain Management
Professor Min Zhang, who will be teaching students on the programme, commented:
“The COVID-19 pandemic has created huge uncertainties in demands and disruptions in local and global supply chains. The course will equip students with the knowledge and skills that can enhance the responsiveness, resilience, and restoration of supply chains. The students can develop a better understanding of the post pandemic world and how to adapt and transform business operations to survive and grow in the “90% economy”
