Univ of Sydney vs Curtin - Masters in Supply Chain


RRajan
Hi all,

Wanted to gather some opinion of which program/school is better overall in terms of their Full time, on-site MCom program for Supply chain / logistics degrees (1.5 and 2 yrs).

I have 9.5 yrs past exp in sales (oil & gas), and am looking to shift to Supply chain/Logistics on a permanent basis and am keen to be based in Australia due to other factors. I am currently on a break and appearing for IELTS this month....I am specifically looking for a long term career in SC and want to find the best options / methods to make this career shift. My initial search led me to UoSydney and Curtin as best MBA rank options, but glad to hear others...in terms of long term stability. LinkedIn didnt help me much in terms of overall alumni shift.

I have found it hard to make a move post taking a sales role and hence want to take this head on. Please advice what is the overall job prospects in Australia post this degree. I am adding to this a CAPM (Proj Mgmt) and Six Sigma course, whislt i am on this break...

Cheers,
Ron

As you have a comparatively high amount of experience under your belt, I would think that an MBA program would be a better option for you than one of these master's level programs in supply chain. An MBA cohort will probably be more in your work experience range, and an MBA from an accredited school will provide better career support and long-term salary growth as well.

I would contact the schools and ask them about post-degree career expectations for the program - and even ask them to put you in touch with previous grads to get a sense of where they end up and what they are doing.
