Record number of women eye careers in logisticsDec 14, 2012
The class of 2012 comprises 58 per cent women, an increase from 38pc last year.
Course director Dr John Towriss said: “The logistics and supply chain management industry is often perceived as being male-dominated so the fact that women outnumber men on this year’s course is an encouraging sign that things are starting to change and women are attracted to a career in logistics.”
The Masters in Logistics and Supply Chain Management is a 11-month full-time course and is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply.
Ruth Waring, founder and chair of Women in Logistics UK, said that the number of women looking at careers in logistics was rising.
She added: “I find it an extremely encouraging sign that women are investing in a career in logistics with Cranfield which is a great route to gaining credibility in this still male-dominated industry.”
