MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Sheffield University Management School, Faculty of Social Sciences

Triple Crown accreditation means we meet the high standards of three of the world’s most prestigious accreditation bodies: AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. This puts us in the top one per cent of business schools worldwide.

I was attracted by the small class sizes and combination of the interactive teaching programme and research project within an organisation to provide real-world work experience.

About the course

Course description 2017

Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply

This course gives you an overview of how to manage and improve a global and international supply chain. You’ll learn how to manage logistical operations. We’ll also show you how the right technology and strategy can give you a competitive edge. We use case studies and company visits to enhance our teaching. There are industry-sponsored modules and lectures from industrial partners.

You can apply to do a project-based dissertation, working with an external organisation. You could also spend the summer at another leading university overseas. Recent dissertation projects include working with a large logistics company to reduce their fleet’s carbon footprint and a report for an electrical company on the supply chain and market structure of their goods industry.
