The Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc (Masters) has been designed to prepare and develop your ability to carry out advanced analysis and research in the field of logistics and supply chain management within a global context. With full accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS), and a solid syllabus built on concepts and ideas from Kingston University's renowned Operations Research and Management Science Group (ORMS), our logistics masters is a both an academic and a professional qualification.

You will gain the following opportunities to:

  • Gain the practical skills and knowledge to make an immediate and effective contribution in a logistics-related role and a solid understanding of global business from a strategic and operational perspective.
  • Conduct your research project and dissertation on a specific issue that matches your career interests and put theory into practice.
  • Become a CIPS member after three years' experience in purchasing and supply chain management.
  • Take advantage of a guest speaker programme featuring leading experts in logistics and supply chain management.
  • Students come from all over the world to study at Kingston Business School, so you will finish the course with an international network of contacts.
  • Grow a network of logistics and supply chain management professionals during the course.

What will you study?

The programme is delivered on a full-time basis over one year, starting in September. You will be expected to attend scheduled sessions throughout the day (although not necessarily all day) between Monday and Friday.

In the first semester, you will develop a broad understanding of management concepts, theories and ideas, such as how to manage organisations and supply chains. This provides you with a solid foundation from both strategic and operational perspectives.

In the second semester and dissertation, you will put this knowledge to use through practical application to real situations. One example is through company visits, which students often arrange for themselves. These opportunities to engage with real supply chain managers build your confidence and ability to question established practice.

  • Kingston Business School is one of only a few of the 120 UK business schools to be awarded an 'excellent' rating for its teaching quality by the Higher Education Funding Council.

  • Kingston Business School has joined an elite group of global institutions to be awarded the prestigious international accreditation by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). A hallmark of excellence in business education, the accreditation has been earned by just 5 percent of the world's business schools.

Assessment

A mix of assessment techniques is used, including examinations, coursework (based on reports, case study analyses, analytical techniques, etc.), presentations, etc.

Work placement scheme

Many postgraduate courses at Kingston University allow students to do a 12-month work placement as part of their course. The responsibility for finding the work placement is with the student; we cannot guarantee the work placement, just the opportunity to undertake it. As the work placement is an assessed part of the course, it is covered by a student's tier 4 visa.

Invoicing on the placement courses is split into two stages. The standard course fee is payable in year 1 with the placement fee invoiced in year 2. Therefore, students starting in September 2018 would therefore be charged the placement fee of £1,230 in September 2019. Students commencing the course in September 2019 will be invoiced the placement fee in 2020 (provisionally £1,350).

This amount will only be charged to your account after you find a placement and are enrolled on the module. You will not be charged this fee if you do not manage to secure a work placement.
