The  Bachelor  of  Transport  Management  programme  provides  a  systematic  and  coherent  introduction  to  the  knowledge, 
principles,  concepts,  data,  theories  and  problem‐solving  techniques  within  the  field  of  Transport.  The  programme  has  been 
designed to respond to both the local and international contexts as students will explore the ways in which Transport roles exist 
and function within Namibia and in developing societies more generally. The programme will enable students to acquire a blend 
of cognitive and intellectual skills, as well as more hands‐on practical and key transferable skills, and to apply these competencies 
in addressing transport challenges in Namibia and the international community.
The programme aims at producing transport graduates who can competently manage transport and logistics related tasks and 
duties  as  well  as  make  transport  related  decisions  within  the  scope  of  their  responsibilities.  Graduates  would  be  able  to 
appraise  and  manage  the  synergy  between  transport  and  other  functional  areas  of  management  in  an  organisation.  The 
programme  aims at equipping  students with a  diverse  range  of  skills and competencies  that are  transport  specific and job 
related. Graduates will be able to use relevant transport information in the process of making effective and efficient transport 
decisions, managing themselves and others, and providing mentorship and coaching to subordinates.
The overall purpose of this programme is to produce graduates who are competent and proficient in performing a wide spectrum 
of routine, complex and multi‐dimensional transport and logistics‐related tasks, duties and responsibilities and achieve reliable 
results with minimal or no supervision.
