This research examined the curriculum design and development methodology for a new programme in Singapore to support the digital transformation towards Supply Chain 4.0. The majority of literature reviews focused on Supply Chain 4.0-related technologies and processes, and little literature was found from the curriculum design and development methodology perspective. This study examines the educational gap between industry requirements and the academic curriculum and summarizes the methodology used for a new digital supply chain programme development. The methodology covered the processes of analyzing the industry workforce requirements, creating the contents, designing the teaching, learning, and assessment approaches, industrial-based experiential learning, and curriculum review and improvements. The research addressed the need to examine the methodology of developing a digital supply chain programme. The research included implications for higher education to address the new digital supply chain programme development towards Supply Chain 4.0 vision.
