Department Of Logistics and Supply Chain Management

OVERVIEW

Logistics and Supply Chain Management is key to all successful military operations. The success of military operations is determined by logistic support. During operations, however, it is the number of logistics that determine what course of action to take in order to unlock the adversary’s center of gravity and ultimately achieve the aim/end state in an operation. Hence, it is imperative for Officer Cadets to become familiar with concepts and principles of logistics and supply chain management at the early stage of their training.                                       

The defence of Nigeria’s sovereignty and territorial borders, and the role of the armed forces in internal security operations occasioned by the recent insurgency necessitate the need for the establishment of this programme. The programme is therefore of immense benefit to defence and national security.

Owing to the growing need for effective logistics in the Nigerian Armed forces, the Department of Logistics and Supply Chain Management was established in August 2018. It was first domiciled in the Faculty of Military Science and Interdisciplinary Studies and later moved to Faculty of Management Sciences in 2020. The Department commenced academic activities for the 2018/2019 Academic session in October 2018, with five (5) Cadets of the 70 Regular Course.

Description and Objectives

Logistics and Supply Chain Management programme is very unique in the Nigerian University system as Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) is about the first University in the country to start the (BSc) programme at undergraduate level. The department started Postgraduate programmes in 2021 with Postgraduate Diploma in Logistics and Supply Chain Management and Professional Masters in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. The Department was established with a clear mission statement, philosophy and objectives.
