Course content

Every product or service that comes to market relies on the expert combination of human power, material resources and financial investment. As an MSc Operations and Logistics Management student, you will explore how to bring these elements together successfully. You’ll learn how to anticipate and respond to problems, and how to create order in the most complex situations.

The course is carefully designed to help you understand the primary and supporting activities in a value chain, and operations and logistics management practices. You will study key areas such as inventories, transportation, warehousing, procurement, supply chain and logistics operations, sustainable supply chains, innovations and technology management, low-carbon supply chain and logistics, and materials management. You’ll also explore the application of technologies to supply chain management.

Our teaching is research-led, including from UEA’s respected Innovation, Technology and Operations Management group (ITOM), ensuring you benefit from the very latest thinking in this rapidly changing field. Rather than relying solely on textbooks, you’ll be taught the latest operations and logistics innovations reported in academic and practitioner journals. We have strong links to industry, and you will also learn from practising experts and guest speakers.

You will learn by analysing case studies to gain valuable insights into real workplace problems and their possible solutions. This study of real-life and created cases means you can fast-track to having the kind of industry expertise that might otherwise take years to amass. Throughout your degree you will take an international view, ensuring that you graduate ready to take your skills across borders.

As well as developing essential specialist skills, this course will help you improve key transferable skills, including critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, decision-making, and effective use of information and communications technology. You’ll also build your experience in teamwork, management and giving presentations – including to non-operations and supply chain specialists. This experience will give you the edge when you graduate.

We can provide you with access to a UK-based company that’s facing a real business challenge. The insights you gather will form the basis of your dissertation, which will be brought to life by real-world examples. Together, the theoretical knowledge and practical experience you gain will help you demonstrate your full potential to future employers.
