Are you looking to work in a dynamic sector where talented individuals are in high demand? This course combines management studies with a strong specialist focus on operations, logistics and supply chain management (LCSM).

The specialist LCSM modules cover strategic procurement, sustainable supply chains, improving the supply chain, and strategic partnerships. The course culminates in either a master’s dissertation or, if you prefer, a consultancy project where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client.

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) which will give you extra credibility in the eyes of potential employers.

Additionally the course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Teaching and Assessment

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and workshops. As this is a master’s course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection.

Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.

Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment methods include assignments, presentations, exams, and the master’s dissertation or consultancy project.
