Course content

Our accredited Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc provides you with the specialist knowledge and skills that you need for a career in logistics and supply chain management.

Alongside traditional lectures you will gain practical experience from projects, case studies and talks from industry experts. You will learn about international logistics, operations management, analytics for logistics, enterprise systems, e-procurement and strategic purchasing. You will also learn practical business skills in financial analysis, problem solving, cross-cultural teamwork and consultancy.

With our emphasis on practical learning, in your third term you will have opportunities to either visit our industry partners to learn about their activities and challenges, or to apply your new knowledge acting as a consultant. As part of this programme you also have the opportunity to complete a six-month paid work placement.

The University of Brighton is also a member of the SAP University Alliances Programme – you will gain experience of using SAP software, one of the world's most widely used enterprise planning systems.

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).
