Postgraduate Certificate in Strategic Supply Chain Management

 Learn the latest supply chain technologies and innovations such as such as the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, robotics, big data analytics that dramatically improve visibility across the end-to-end supply chain, anticipate and meet future challenges and support companies’ ability to resist being vulnerable to traditional supply chain risk and disruption.

The programme is delivered via lectures, seminars, workshops, business games and simulations and directed independent study. This will be supported through

  • The creation of a learning environment which fosters debate and constructive argument;
  • Modules which encourage students to critically assess theory and leading edge practice with a view to creating new concepts and practices for the future;
  • Practical projects which foster originality of thought and enterprise;
  • Exercises which develop critical analysis of financial statements.

Students will be presented with increasingly complex business scenarios (case studies) and will be encouraged to gain a deeper and wider perspective of the business problem, while at the same time maintaining the strategic view which is the key concern of the postgraduate student.
