The Higher Education Council has approved the introduction of a master’s program in Supply Chain Management and Logistics Technology at Princess Sumaya University for Technology’s King Talal School of Business Technology, starting from the beginning of the coming academic year, 2022/2023.
The President of the University, Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai, indicated that the process of developing academic programs in general is in line with PSUT’s strategic plan based on the accumulation of knowledge and keeping it up-to-date and in line with the developments of the times, to achieve the goals of sustainable development in society. He added that this process is preceded by extensive consultations with experts in the labor markets.
Al-Refai added that the new program serves to bridge the gap between the labor market and academic institutions through applied research and works to provide the labor market with knowledgeable, skilled specialists who are equipped to deal with changes in life and technology.
The Dean of the School, Dr. George Sammour, said that the new specialization covers the urgent market need for some specialized and rare topics in the field of supply chain management, such as food system sustainability, management of supply operations in humanitarian organizations, and marine logistics services.
The International Education Magazine listed PSUT’s King Talal School of Business Technology among the top 10 business colleges in Asia and the Pacific region for the year 2022, following a survey it conducted of the opinions of graduates and employers in terms of students' readiness to engage in the labor market and the knowledge and skills they obtain that help them compete for jobs.
Two years ago, PSUT was accredited by the AACSB, thus becoming one of only 2% of universities outside the USA, and the first ever Jordanian university, to be awarded this accreditation.
