The International Master in e-Supply Chain Management seeks to provide skills and competencies to people who want to successfully respond to the new challenges we face today in our society. A new operational approach is required for an environment that is characterized by a structural change in every way.

In a global market, companies ought to constantly create and develop new ideas to have a good positioning and get new competitive advantages. The management of the supply chain corresponds to the combination of current technology and best worldwide business practices. Improving the internal operations, lowering costs and achieving greater savings, benefits and the increase of customer satisfaction are some of the goals that contribute to it.

This program is not intended to theorize about the supply chain, but to develop the necessary criteria to enable you to have a clear, current and comprehensive overview of operations and see how they efficiently and effectively interact in our current environment.
Thus, this program aims to train professionals on having a strategic vision, so that they not only mastered the logistics but that they focused on developing the internationalization of the company, going beyond transport and storage, so that they mastered all the needs and areas such as planning, management and control of logistics strategy and internationalization of the company.
In the program the theoretical approach is used only to induce the student to “learn by doing” exercises, such as debates and case studies, which seek the enrichment of participants, by identifying all possible solutions and alternatives to the different business situations.

Today's economic conditions, characterised by increased price volatility and scarcity on energy and resources fronts, require a change in perspective. We believe an innovative approach, integrating systems thinking and looking beyond the linear ‘take, make, dispose’ model, is the answer that a forward-looking School of Management should strive to provide.

We have designed the Innovation, Enterprise and Circular Economy Postgraduate Certificate to provide a comprehensive and stimulating specialist course by tackling subjects including regenerative product design, new business models, reverse logistics and enabling communication technologies.

The programme is studied through distance-learning, using a combination of self-study, online teaching and group discussions. This flexibility means that you can fit your learning around your work and home commitments, and complete the postgraduate certificate at a pace to suit you, in anything from 2 to 6 years.

This Postgraduate Certificate sits as a separate award within the Innovation, Enterprise and Circular Economy distance-learning MBA programme. It is designed for those who wish to solely focus on circular economy without the additional MBA elements. The Postgraduate Certificate however is designed in such a way that you can convert to the MBA at a later date if you so wish, subject to the approval of the programme director.

Circular economy students are not required to attend any sessions at University of Bradford School of Management.

Why Bradford?

We are proud to be in an elite group of business schools in the world (less than 1%) to hold the triple accreditations of Equis, AMBA and AACSB, often referred to as the "Triple Crown".

At the end of the taught programme you put into practice what you have learnt by investigating and reporting on an important management issue or opportunity. If you are sponsored by your employer, the project can relate to your workplace.

Otherwise, you may choose to use the project to deepen your knowledge of a different sector or organisation, or as a stepping stone to your next job. The project findings and recommendations are then written up in a 15,000-word dissertation.

Throughout the project you will be guided by an experienced academic and you will have access to the School of Management Effective Learning department. The Effective Learning service often proves to be very useful providing students with a clear understanding and guidelines on what is required in order to successfully complete their project.

Learning activities and assessment

All our MBA programmes are made up of three stages:
-Core modules – designed to help you get back in to learning and provide fundamental knowledge of management principles and theory
-Elective modules – provide an in-depth understanding of specialist topics that are essential and relevant to the contemporary commercial world. Students choose those that are of most interest or greatest career benefit
-Management project – enables you to put the knowledge and skills gained throughout the programme to practical use on a relevant management issue

Circular Economy students are not required to attend any sessions at University of Bradford School of Management. However students can chose to study up to three modules (each running over 3-5 days) at the School of Management or at one of our partner institutions in Singapore or Dubai for no extra cost (other than travel and subsistence costs).

Your knowledge and understanding of each subject area studied will be assessed by the most appropriate means. This will typically involve the completion of a written assignment, an exam or in some cases an assignment and an exam. If you need to sit an exam we have approved examination centres worldwide, making it highly likely that there is an exam centre near you. Please note, if you do not sit the exam at University of Bradford School of Management or RDI (Coventry) you have to pay an extra fee to your chosen examination centre.

You can do this by undertaking up to 3 block modules (i.e. 3-5 days of intensive study) at no extra cost (other than travel, accommodation and subsistence) at the School of Management or at our partner institution in Dubai.
