Course content

Logistics and supply chain management throughout the world has never been the subject of so much public, organisational, and academic debate as in recent years.

Logistics and supply chains have become a prominent and dynamic area in a wide range of industries and sectors. The global pandemic, port congestion, and Brexit has drawn out activities which normally happen in the background into the foreground. Alongside this, the debates surrounding globalisation, onshoring, supply chain configuration, sustainability, and industry/supply chain 4.0 make this field dynamic and future focused.

The globalisation of activities makes it essential that the professional practices relating to (international) logistics and supply chain management processes are improved and regarded as a key element in the preparation of organisations’ strategies.

The programme supports the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular: Goal 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production, and Goal 13 - Climate Action, alongside a live business challenge.

This programme aims to develop your knowledge, critical appraisal, and reflection of practice, of supply chains, logistics, and analytics. Therefore enabling you to:

  1. Gain knowledge and skills necessary for successful strategic supply chain management and logistical thinking, within the context of dynamic local and global challenges.
  2. Source, analyse, and critically appraise various types of business data and practice.
  3. Integrate cutting-edge strategic research and practice to achieve business transformation.

Graduates from the programme will receive an exemption from the academic requirements for membership (Chartered Member or Full Member) of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.
