This course gives you an overview of how to manage and improve a global and international supply chain. You’ll learn how to manage logistical operations. We’ll also show you how the right technology and strategy can give you a competitive edge. We use case studies and company visits to enhance our teaching. There are industry-sponsored modules and lectures from industrial partners.
You can apply to do a project-based dissertation, working with an external organisation. You could also spend the summer at another leading university overseas. Recent dissertation projects include working with a large logistics company to reduce their fleet’s carbon footprint and a report for an electrical company on the supply chain and market structure of their goods industry.
Our graduates work for companies such as Adidas, ASDA, Boots, ExxonMobil, HSBC, Morgan Stanley, Pepsico International, Sainsbury’s and Vodafone. Their job titles include Head of Business Enhancement, Management Consultant, Product Marketing Manager, Web Marketing Consultant and Campaign Manager.
An MBA can help you change direction or progress faster within your organisation. A specialist MSc can take you into a particular field of management such as human resources, finance or marketing. You might be inspired to set up a company of your own.
