Course content

To excel as a modern-day supply chain or logistics professional, an understanding of the academic fundamentals is key. In today’s fast-paced world, supply chain management has become more than transport, logistics, and warehousing. Those looking to lead in senior roles are expected to understand complex data and procurement processes while driving the need for sustainability.
The modules on this course cover a wide range of supply topics including:
  • the role of financial management, including corporate finance, management accounting and economics
  • the rise of sustainability in supply chain planning and decision-making
  • management decisions, marketing channels and relationships: why trading and transport channels are interconnected
Upon successful completion of the course, you will have the opportunity to progress to a PG Dip or our full Masters degree.
