Course content

Develop the knowledge and skills to manage these critical business functions.
Producing and delivering products and services on time, in budget, effectively and efficiently, is critical to the economic viability of contemporary organisations. However, with growing demand across vast geographies, viability is constantly under threat.
In order to meet these demands, logistics and operations management professionals are increasingly drawn from diverse disciplinary backgrounds including mathematics, economics, engineering, geography, law, management and psychology.
The business of changing the world is ours.
Our MSc in Logistics and Operations Management recognises the importance of multi-disciplinarity. We’ll help you become a management professional prized for their problem-solving capabilities; someone who creates order from complexity, identifies issues and implements solutions and ensures end-to-end efficiency, without compromising the ethics of logistics and operations across organisations’ products and services.
Our experts will draw on academic and consultancy expertise to prepare you for global career opportunities, helping you explore transportation and low carbon logistics, inventories, warehousing and procurement, and resource and materials management. They’ll use world leading research and real-world examples to introduce you to technological innovations in logistics, alongside the latest management techniques, systems and thinking.
