  • Current Director of Operations at Kerry Logistics
  • Bachelor of Business Administration (Hons) in Global Supply Chain Management Graduate (2010)
Going from school to a career is possible with the program at PolyU.

Making a subject choice for university is always a difficult task. To a large extent it reflects how your future will be. I chose supply chain and logistics as it is a very practical industry. Logistics is about more than just transportation and warehouses, and shipping is not just sailing a ship on the sea.

It is a meticulous process connecting business, government regulations, people management and engineering. Using the most efficient and effective way to move goods around the world is a challenging and interesting task. I enjoy the ever-changing work and lifestyle of the industry.

My study experience at PolyU Logistics granted me theoretical and practical knowledge in the logistics and supply chain industry. As a student, I was equipped with market insights, international exposure and interpersonal skills, through various workshops and interactive classes and lectures.

We also had the chance to meet industry professionals in social events and company visits. The department also organises cross disciplinary activities with the Faculty of Business and PolyU, where we had the chance to interact with students from other disciplines.


Alumni success stories from the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University


Wendi Wang

  • Current Master of Philosophy (MPhil) student of Industrial Systems Manufacture Management at the University of Cambridge
  • Bachelor of Business Administration (Hons) in Global Supply Chain Management Graduate - 2017
The diversified learning experience at the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies has led Wang to her further studies in the subject.

The multi-faceted Global Supply Chain Management programme at PolyU has been proven beneficial for my future. Through intensive report writing, group projects and presentations in courses, I was trained to be a team player and a professional business student. Insightful case studies in class were useful and have developed my interest in the consulting industry. Apart from that, the internship I took part in was where I was able to apply my practical knowledge from class in a work setting.

I participated in an exchange programme to HEC Montreal (École des hautes études commerciales de Montréal), which broadened my horizons with international exposure. I became more confident in expressing my opinions and was motivated to learn more about the logistics and supply chain industry. 

I am very grateful for my education at PolyU and the solid foundation it has laid for my future career.
