Course content

Competition and the globalisation of supply markets are redefining the way modern supply chains and logistics are managed. Companies who outsource need flexible and responsive supply chain and logistical operations which deliver added value to their customers with an increasing focus on protecting the environment.

These can lead to sustainable competitive advantage which in turn enables long-term growth and profitability. The growth and success of Amazon illustrates the huge potential of supply chain management and logistics.

To create and sustain such competitive advantage, organisations need highly trained individuals capable of developing diverse, bespoke and innovative supply chain and logistical solutions.

Developed in collaboration with current industry partners, this MSc Supply Chain Management and Logistics addresses the growing demand for highly trained individuals by seeking to develop professionals with up-to-date knowledge, skills and capabilities in the key areas of strategic supply chain management, logistics, sourcing, procurement, contracts, ecommerce, forecasting and environmental management.
