Course Description

Modern business practices rely on accurate logistics and reliable, dependable supply chains. The smooth operation of these crucial aspects of company operations affects the profitability and reputation of any organisation that supplies business-to-business or business-to-consumer.

Accredited by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS), this course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed by this fast-paced industry. Alongside topics such as strategic sourcing, contract and stakeholder management, and risk management, you also study information technology and information systems. This reflects the revolutionary impact the internet and e-commerce have had on logistics and supply chain management and how they continue to drive innovation.

You also engage in contemporary issues that influence industry practices such as ethical sourcing, reducing CO2 emissions and government policies that affect transport and infrastructure investments (road, rail, aviation and maritime).

During your studies, you may have the opportunity to participate in:
-Industry visits to real companies
-Short term internships with local employers
-Live business projects for real clients
-A live consultancy project for your final dissertation

Open to graduates holding degrees in any subject, this course assumes no prior knowledge of business or management and is suitable for both UK, EU and international students wishing to progress their academic knowledge of logistics and supply chain management.

Employers look favourably on candidates who can demonstrate relevant and practical work experience. All Masters students at the Business School are encouraged to undertake an optional, short-term internship with a real business in order to develop relevant experience relating to their studies.

The Postgraduate Internship Programme is an optional unit which allows you to gain up to fourteen weeks of work experience in a business environment; putting your studies into practical application, at the same time as gaining practice credits, which are recorded on your degree qualification transcript.
