This master’s programme was introduced in response to the growing importance of professionally-managed purchasing and supply chains, as well as recognising the strategic value of skilled operations managers.
These topics have been high on the political agenda for several years and as companies have become more aware of the strategic value of supply chain management, salaries have risen rapidly.
Throughout the programme there also runs the thread of sustainability and social responsibility.
The programme is taught by staff from the School of Engineering and Technology which was recently awarded an excellent grading in the HEFCE auditors' report.
