Please note that this course will not start until September 2019.

The MSc Sustainable Operations Management aims to provide very practical focussed learning of how sustainability and environmental impact reduction can be integrated with traditional operations management. 

There is a particular focus on resource efficiency with core modules including monitoring and measuring, opportunities to improve energy and water efficiency of building services, renewable energy and emerging environmental technologies. 

Students will also study and practice project management theories and techniques and Environmental Management Systems.

You will explore a variety of practice-based topics across a full range of environmental management and business disciplines. 

The programme has been designed with input from consultants working in environmental management and is focused on giving students a practical understanding of the systems, processes and legislation required for businesses to implement and operate sustainable practice. 

There is a specific emphasis on implementing and auditing sustainable supply chains. 

The focus of the final project will be on the practical implementation of sustainable operations practice.

You will be taught by staff from within the Centre for Research in Sustainable Business. You will study a wide variety of business and environmental management topics in an interactive environment and get the opportunity to apply these around related projects some in support of local businesses. You will visit regional businesses on field trips to better understand sustainable practice in action and apply this to your own projects. From 2018, you will have access to the University’s landmark Engineering and Digital Technology Building, which is being designed to allow students to explore efficient building management.

Our facilities

You will undertake your workshops in training rooms that are bang up-to-date with design features, touch screen electronic white boards and high speed wifi; housed across three stunning Georgian mansions.

All of our current students love the learning environment, the culture, camaraderie and the fact that tutors know them by name so they are more than just a ‘face in the crowd’.

From September 2018, some of the teaching sessions will take place in the purpose-built Engineering and Digital Technology building in the Bognor Regis campus.

What's more you have lots of other facilities on this dedicated university campus including latest books, journals and online data in a truly modern library, an IT centre, a student zone complete with Costa Coffee, a gym and much more.

Where this can take you

The course has been designed to provide you with a very practical understanding of the issues associated with implementing and managing sustainable practices in business and other public sector and not-for-profit organisations. 

On completing the degree, you should be able to apply for a wide range of jobs associated with:

  • facilities management
  • sustainable sourcing
  • auditing and supply chains
  • environmental project management
  • corporate social responsibility implementation and oversight
  • Health and Safety
