Entry requirements

Candidates will normally be graduates from a recognised university with a minimum of a 2:1: a sliding scale of specific conditions in terms of academic requirement, based around this 2:1 level, is also in place as the admissions criteria for most international recruitment markets.

Candidates will normally be graduates from a recognised university in related fields such as supply chain, logistics and/or operations management, Engineering, Business/Management disciplines, Computer Science, Economics, Trade or Finance.

In exceptional cases students can be considered with other degrees e.g. English, Physics, Social Sciences or Humanities, particularly where there is evidence of significant professional experience in a relevant occupation. Non-graduates with approved professional qualifications or significant work experience may also be considered under certain circumstances.

Course content

Supply chain management is becoming an increasingly important aspect of the business world. Products are sourced, manufactured and transported on a global scale, leading to the need for skilled professionals in this area. However, these professionals also need to be increasingly aware of the wider impacts of these activities, with a focus beyond just economic impacts.

The MSc Sustainable Supply Chain Management aims to provide the skills to enable supply chain managers of the future to thrive in this dynamic environment. Supported by world leading research in this area, the course provides you with the capability to make decisions that consider the full range of economic, social and environmental impacts of supply chains. The inclusion of sustainability as a key part of the course provides a distinguishing feature of this course.

You will study a range of taught modules that combine to give a comprehensive understanding of all aspects in sustainable supply chain management, including procurement, supply and the distribution of products, as well as tackling cross-cutting issues such as the impact of technology. At the end of the course, you are required to carry out a dissertation research study, providing an in-depth examination of an issue of your choice.
