Our MSc Management and Global Supply Chain Management course is a unique course for those considering a career within logistics management, operations management and supply chain consultancy. You will study contemporary issues relating to strategic operations, operational decision-making and the principles of management.
It begins by exploring the management of operations at a strategic level, before developing your understanding of the global supply chain and how organisations within it perform in relation to one another. You'll also undertake analysis with realistic data, tackling the type of questions you might face in an operations or global supply chain environment and building valuable practical skills.
You’ll be firmly rooted in understanding the global supply chain, and you’ll gain a broad knowledge of the principles and concepts underlying the strategic and operational performance of organisations in relation to one another within the international supply chain. Building on your practical skills by analysing realistic data to explore the questions you might confront in an operations role, and / or in a global supply chain environment.
When you graduate, you'll receive both the Masters degree and a Chartered Institute of Managers (CMI) Level 7 qualification in Management and Leadership.
