The need for international businesses to adopt ethical and sustainable strategies throughout their supply chains is increasing. This programme focuses on producing employable, responsible graduates, enabling you to make a valuable contribution to the industry.
Glasgow Caledonian University's Glasgow School for Business and Society developed this Masters in line with their research, the industry and the requirements of the two Professional Accreditation bodies (Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and transport (CILT)). A unique aspect of the programme is that students can achieve Yellow Belt accreditation as part of the course.
You will join with students from different cultures and backgrounds to develop an international awareness of managing business operations and supply chains. The opportunity of a work related activity combined with exploring examples, cases and contributions from leading commentators, scholars and researchers of operations management and supply chain management will result in an appreciation and understanding of theories and practices from different contexts around the globe.
What you will study
Teacher led sessions from our academics who have extensive experience in teaching overseas are sensitive to cultural diversity, and within the curriculum draw on cross-cultural illustrations and ideas to enhance study and involve students. The teaching methods have a clear focus on employability and “real-world” skills development producing graduates that are fit for work. This is enabled by industry speakers, a placement module (Applied Professional Practice), and practical case studies/client projects.
Develop your knowledge and skills needed to succeed and contribute to the industry by:
Participating in opportunities for cross-cultural interaction through experiential and problem-based learning
Gaining professional development of essential and desirable graduate skills and competencies within operations and supply chain management
Understand the supply chain networks in a global environment along with sustainable business operations, quality and supplier management to become a critical thinker and deliver performance improvement
Successfully managing logistical and transport challenges as well as projects and finance whilst underpinning ethical and responsible management
