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.
