Course content

Huddersfield Business School is excited to announce a new portfolio of courses that are currently being formalised. These are designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to be influential and successful in a rapidly changing global environment.

Our new portfolio covers a wide variety of subject areas offering courses in traditional business and management alongside new and innovative topics. Although this specific course will not be available in 2019, a similar range of courses will follow covering contemporary topics that suit the changing external environment. Our new courses should be available to view online from mid-November, however in the meantime please do get in touch if you would like to enquire about any of our Business School courses.

This course provides the essential framework, concepts and toolkit required for the strategic management of logistics and the supply chain.

Within a business context, it is now recognised that one of the main ways in which competitive advantage can be gained, is through the effective and efficient management of the supply chain - the term used to describe the flow of products or services from their point of origin through to the final point of sale or use. Logistics is essentially an interactive process within the supply chain; it seeks to optimise these flows, from both a physical and information standpoint.

Key modules include Retail Logistics, Strategic Management, Freight Transport Management, and Supply Chain Planning and Control. You will learn through innovative teaching techniques including case studies, simulations, lab based activities and interactive games. You will also have the opportunity to network with industry experts, gain real-world expertise, and be given an introduction to the enterprise resource planning software SAP.

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