Course content

Transitioning to a more sustainable way of life is key to our future. This MSc will provide you with the knowledge and skills to drive forward change in the management of global supply chains.

With the climate crisis threatening the future of our planet, companies are moving to make their global supply chains more sustainable, ethical and resilient without weakening their competitiveness. Our MSc in Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management will prepare you to take on this challenge.

Supply chains draw together all of the activities required to deliver goods or services to a consumer, from sourcing raw materials to production, marketing and delivery, and are a fundamental element of all businesses. On this degree you will learn how to manage this process.

You will develop an understanding of all of these processes and of the different roles people in the chain play and how these work to deliver the product or service.

You will explore the use of accounting, budgetary and other information systems in planning, decision-making and control, and how to apply appropriate analytical tools and techniques to optimise organisation performance.

You will also examine how sustainability practices and concepts influence international business policy, stakeholder relationships and strategy design and process.

The academic staff you will be taught by have a wealth of experience in supply chains across different industries including maritime, food, health, manufacturing and service. They have published high-quality journal articles that are linked to real-life case studies, and you will be able to critically evaluate and appreciate cutting edge research in logistics and SCM and its applications to business practice.

There is the option of taking a placement year where you can put your skills and knowledge into practice as well as develop professional contacts within the industry.

This course is a CIPS accredited programme. As a student registered on a CIPS Accredited programme, you will be entitled to complimentary CIPS Affiliate membership.

A CIPS accredited programme also provides fast-track to MCIPS. To apply for MCIPS designation, you will need to submit your application to CIPS within 5 years of graduating and you must have 3 years experience within a role of responsibility within the procurement and supply sector.
