The course is modular - each student takes a combination of core and elective modules. 9 modules are studied and assessed in total. Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition in the form of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations, case studies and e-learning. This is covered in a full-immersion, intensive week. Modules are assessed by Post Module Assignment.
The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%. An oral examination is held upon completion.
The core modules for this MSc are:
- Supply Chain Management
- Procurement and Inventory Management
- Logistics & Operations Management
- Storage & Warehouse Techniques
- Transportation Techniques & Management
- Financial Analysis & Control Systems
- Organisations, People & Performance
Two elective modules can also be chosen - a full list of elective modules is available on the website.
The project is worth 50% of the final grade and supports you in developing your personal research skills. Work on your project runs concurrently with your module work.
You are expected to devote an appropriate portion of your time and intellectual effort to the project during the course i.e. approximately 900 hours or 6 months study.
For Supply Chain and Logistics Management, the project can be related to a number of different industrial sectors and can address many different aspects of logistics management. Typical projects for students on this course are:
- Management of inventory of packaging materials
- Are third-party logistics (3PL) companies innovative enough to satisfy their customers?
- Forecasting demand in a changing market.
