Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused master’s degree that will enhance your employability? This two-year course with study abroad develops broad business skills while also offering a specialist pathway in logistics and supply chain management (LSCM). This 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. You’ll develop your research skills through a master’s dissertation or an investigative consultancy project.
In the second year of this course you’ll undertake study in another country for one semester. Employers often prefer applicants who have a strong international awareness and studying abroad will help you stand out from others. Our partner institutions offer study related to the areas of operations, logistics and supply chain management and will increase your experience.
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.
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 two-year 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.
A first degree, equivalent to a 2.2 honours classification. Applicants who do not have such an academic qualification but do have substantial experience of working in a business organisation and/or possess a relevant professional qualification will also be considered
