Canadian University Dubai’s BBA in Operations & Supply Chain Management will provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to excel in supply chain management including logistics and transportation management, purchasing, procurement and supply management, supply chain sustainability, distribution and pricing strategies, supply chain legal environments, project management, supply chain risk analysis, and supply chain technologies.

The BBA will balance theory and practice in operations and supply chain management in order to prepare graduates to meet future challenges and create new synergies across disciplines that are relevant in today’s changing manufacturing and service sectors’ environment.


The logistics and supply chain industry is a key part of the engine driving the UAE’s economic growth and competitiveness. The UAE supply chain and logistics market has been on a robust growth trajectory and is well placed to be the key logistics hub in the GCC region by 2030.

To date, the sector has played a vital role in the country’s sustained economic growth by contributing nearly 14 per cent of the UAE’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2015.

As a result of this growth the demand for supply chain and procurement professionals for the manufacturing sector has increased dramatically, and the continued growth in construction, infrastructure, retail, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), and the healthcare sectors means that the demand for professionals in these industries is also growing rapidly.

Graduates of this program will find themselves in high demand across a wide range of industries in the UAE and beyond.
