I chose Cranfield because if its high rankings. Life on campus is like a little universe of it own. The academics that taught me and the career service are fantastic. The Cranfield alumni network is very powerful and I am pleased to be part of it. I did a consultancy project whilst studying with an external client which was great experience.

I chose Cranfield for its great reputation which has been formed by the many industry leaders who have studied or worked there. I believe that the knowledge I have acquired will be an invaluable asset to any organisation and be beneficial to my career. The environment is next-to-none for studying and the lecturers are very experienced. For our group project we worked with a marketing consultancy in London on one of their real-life business problems. Connecting with business in this way brings learning to life.
The reputation of the Cranfield course was superb and the course content and delivery backed up that reputation. It was varied and interesting, up-to-date and relevant. The use of external lecturers was also good. In addition, the course provided a great networking experience which will help me with my career.

Cranfield University has a good reputation in offering valuable education in Supply Chain Management. I studied with an international cohort with participants from all over the world. The course programme was well structured so that I could cope with my job and my studies. The tutors were very good and covered a broad spectrum of content. The course has opened my mind and allowed me to make better decisions using my improved skill set. Gaining this postgraduate degree has strengthened by CV. My studies included several case studies, and some group projects. I focused my thesis on the impact of promotions on a retailer's supply chain. This work was carried out in my own company, covering many different departments such as distribution centres and stores. Whilst it was a demanding project, it was very interesting and very rewarding.

I studied full-time at Cranfield, which I chose because of its good reputation in the field of logistics and supply chain management. I found its close relationships with industry gave me opportunity to work on real things which bring true value for my future career. The research environment is focused and mature.
Some of my experiences when I was at Cranfield were tough but introduced me to new items like popular topics in industry. I found the time constraints for assignments and projects brought challenges but helped me to improve my own processes to deal with tough times. I learned how to solve complicated problems in a much more effective way. So, all in all, my course has helped me to be more positive when facing difficulties by teaching me how to get over them.
At the beginning of the year we did group assignments. Then, for my thesis project, I worked alone. My thesis project was sponsored by British American Tobacco (BAT) and focused on a procurement-related topic. The company was very supportive - both regarding my project and my career development. My professor at Cranfield also guided me with clear structure and direction. With their help, I reached outcomes I didn't expect I would be capable of when I first arrived.

We welcome applications from talented candidates of all backgrounds and a degree is not always necessary for entry onto this Executive MSc course. We consider your qualifications and work experience on an individual basis. Usually candidates must hold either a first or a second class UK honours degree in a relevant discipline and have two years’ relevant work experience; or the international equivalent of these UK qualifications; or a professional qualification and have logistics related work experience.
