Pursuing a career related to the fields of logistics and operations management is becoming an increasingly popular choice around the world.
The MSc in Logistics and Operations Management aims to provide you with a thorough understanding of the disciplines of logistics and operations management and an insight into the latest developments through our world-leading research.
In the taught stage, you will study a range core and optional modules that equip you with key knowledge in logistics and operations management while enabling more focus in topics that are of particular interest and relevance to you. In doing so, both qualitative and quantitative skills can be developed. Through the dissertation, you can further develop an area of special interest in logistics and operations management, under the supervision of one of our experts, enabling you to demonstrate the knowledge and skills you have gained during the taught modules.
Our teaching is heavily informed by research and combines academic rigour with practical relevance. Our internationally leading faculty consists of academics who are at the forefront of knowledge within their field. They bring the lessons learnt from their most recent research into the classroom, giving you access to up-to-date real-life examples and scenarios and critical business thinking. Reflecting the Business School’s wider strategy, Public Value is embedded within our teaching.
Many teaching and learning resources will be provided electronically through Learning Central. In order to successfully complete the course, you will need to work during and outside formal teaching sessions, and to make good use of the facilities provided.
Most modules involve a mixture of lectures and small group teaching (called classes, seminars, workshops or tutorials). In a lecture, the lecturer will mainly give an overview of a particular aspect of the module content. You will have opportunities to ask questions and be reflective in lectures. Classes and workshops provide you with the opportunity to practice techniques, discuss ideas, apply concepts and consolidate understanding of the topic.
In addition to timetabled classes, guest presentations by practitioners will also be available, enabling you to relate the knowledge provided by the lecturers to real-world examples.
