Business is global and our ability to compete successfully requires our experience and knowledge in developing and managing the global supply chain. This is the course for you if you are looking for a career in operations and logistics either within companies or in specialist logistics and operations businesses.

You will acquire knowledge about the primary and support activities in a value chain and advanced operations and logistics management practices and techniques. Case studies will be applied to help you understand workplace scenarios. This will help you to work as an operations, purchasing, logistics or supply chain manager in both manufacturing and service companies.

Beyond these specialist skills, additional valuable skills that you will acquire include cognitive and transferable skills, including critical thinking and creativity, problem solving and decision making, effective use of information and communications technology, presentation, teamwork, personal effectiveness and ethics and value management. These will increase your capabilities and the opportunities for you to work in both public and private sectors.
