Masters students to get GS1 Australia certification

The University of Wollongong’s Sydney Business School (SBS) is now offering GS1 Australia certification to all students undertaking two of its masters programs.
This initiative will help establish an understanding among future supply chain professionals of how the GS1 standards can be used within a business to make it more efficient. For the students the advantage of certification is the added bonus of recognition from a global supply chain standards-based organisation which could possibly increase their employment prospects both locally and overseas.
The business school has agreed to offer GS1 Australia certification to all students undertaking its Master of Retail Management (MRM) program. SBS’s MRM is the only nationwide masters-level program focused on retail management currently available in Australia. SBS is also offering entry pathways for people in retail who do not have a first degree.
SBS also will embed GS1 Australia certification into its Master of Science (logistics) program. It will be compulsory for students undertaking this program to undertake GS1 Australia certification (at no cost to the student) in order to complete their masters degree.
Steven Pereira, GS1 Australia CIO and head of the organisation’s education initiatives, said: “We are thrilled with the offer to students and the collaboration with SBS. It is a first such initiative, and will go to advancing Australia’s skills in retail, logistics and supply chain management”.
Sue Mathews, business manager of the Sydney Business School added, “We are committed to offering our students not only a quality education, but equipping them with the skills necessary to make them competitive for vacant positions. Our agreement with GS1 is one way we are adding value to the students’ experience at SBS”.
For further information, please contact Mary Riekert of GS1 Australia on 1300 366 033 or (03) 9550 3409 or Sue Mathews of the University of Wollongong at
