Master of Science in Supply Chain Management and Global Logistics

If you are seeking to further your career in supply chain management or interested in gaining insight into global trends in the industry, this business focused MSc will help advance your knowledge of supply chain management and prepare you for the jobs of the future. You will be immersed in the latest technologies and innovations within the supply chain and global logistics industry, including artificial intelligence, block chain technology, big data analytics and automation. You will also explore live issues such as risk mitigation, sustainability and ethics.

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.
