Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused master’s degree that will enhance your employability? This course develops broad business skills while also offering a specialist pathway in logistics and supply chain management (LSCM) that starts after the first semester. LCSM has been voted by the UK’s top 10 food retailers as their most vital management area.
Specialist modules cover strategic procurement and how to manage the sustainability, quality and risks of supply chains. The course culminates in either a master’s dissertation or, if you prefer, a consultancy project. The dissertation is discipline specific, whilst the group consultancy project - where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client - is positioned in an area of relevance to the programme. Throughout the course there’s a focus on self-development and employability.
There is no requirement to have studied business or LCSM at undergraduate level.
The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015 and is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS).
This course is for people who want a master’s qualification in business plus logistics and supply chain management (LSCM) to complement any type of study at undergraduate level, in order to boost employability.
