Multimix Academy, MUST partner on supply chain management training for students
The Multimix Academy, a global learning centre, has partnered with the Malaysia University of Science and Technology (MUST) to train students on supply chain management (SCM).
The programme according to the institute is expected to run for a year. This follows efforts at ensuring that Nigerians become certified supply chain managers.
Managing Director of the academy, Obiora Madu, who noted that the programme was essential for Nigerians, particularly during economic recession, added that by the time Nigeria began to adopt supply chain principles in their dealings, it would trigger a evolution in the industry.
Earlier, Dean, School of Science and Technology, Prof. Sellappan Palaniappan and Head, Institute of post graduate studies, Janaka Low, both of MUST who were facilitators at the training, urged the participants to be dedicated throughout the period of study.
However, they pointed out that dearth of skills, lack of infrastructure and inadequate funding pose serious challenges to efficient supply chain management in the country, as managers described the development as a state of uncertainty.
