Course content

This programme offers a unique curriculum in which project management is embedded into logistics and supply chain process management, including procurement, production, distribution and customer service, with a diverse range in design and structures.

It embraces the latest information and communications technology skills applied to logistics, and covers global supply chain management business strategies for organisations doing business in the global arena.

This programme offers a unique curriculum that includes many practical examples of logistics and supply chain management (SCM) in action. We are one of very few university programmes in the UK which has been accredited by both the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS). This means that students are recognised by these professional bodies as holding their professional qualifications to full professional status level 6 upon completion of the Masters programme. Students participate in CILT and CIPS activities including the CILT annual student conference. Students will visit industrial locations, have seminars given by guest speakers from industry and collaborate with business partners for dissertation projects.

In the final stage of the programme, all students will undertake a consultant project organized by the university, which has been highly valued by previous students.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To gain a systematic understanding of relevant knowledge about logistics and supply chain management
  • To be able to apply relevant knowledge to a range of complex situations taking account of the relationships and interaction with other areas of business or organisations within logistics and supply chain networks
