Abstract


The purpose of this article is to provide a perspective view pertaining to logistics educational needs (LEN) in undergraduate logistics programmes from Malaysian logistics practitioners. It focuses on the perception concerning courses required in logistics programmes offered by the Malaysian higher education institutions from 43 respondents. The objective of this study is to discover what is important across the constructs of courses in logistics program using an open-ended questionnaire. It deals with the exploratory approach to LEN and its relevancy in the present logistics curriculum. The findings show that 39 items were derived from the study and were grouped under knowledge, skills and working experience. The findings are considered to create a roadmap to design a quantitative study for exploring LEN in the Malaysian undergraduate logistics programmes.
