Course content

Operations and supply chain management is much more than simply moving items from A to B. It’s a huge, diverse discipline that’s constantly evolving – adapting to new consumer demands, developing technology and a range of other global issues. This course can give you the advanced understanding and practical skills to master it all.

You’ll explore a range of topics, learning about sourcing products from other countries and navigating international regulations, while getting to grips with enterprise systems like SAP and discovering how we can reduce environmental impact across the supply chain.

We also offer a range of option units, giving you the chance to shape your studies around your interests and professional aims – offering skills in business analytics, project management and more. From there, you’ll be ready for your dissertation, picking a topic of your own interest and putting the theory into practice.
