Course description

The modern supply chain is ubiquitous, reaching into many aspects of consumers’ daily lives, and becoming increasingly important for companies. On this programme, you’ll develop the skills to manage and improve international supply chains.

We’ll show you how the right technology and strategy can give you a competitive edge. We use case studies, industry links and company visits to enhance our teaching. 

Exploring operations, supply chain and green logistics and core sub-disciplines, you’ll acquire expertise in the contribution these systems make and the skills necessary to become a future leader in the low carbon area. Green skills have been identified as a major gap by many governments and industry leaders. This programme will give you an important skill set in an area, likely to be key for future business and organisational leaders.

You can apply to do a company-based dissertation, working with an external organisation. 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.
