Months of entry
SCLM is designed for graduates who want to work within logistics and supply chain management across a variety of business sectors. Typically students will have a background in engineering, maths, statistics, business or management studies. Highly motivated graduates from other disciplines will also be considered.
What the course will provide
The central content is the concept of a supply network: constructing the relationships which bring it into being; commissioning the technologies which enable it to operate; managing the input, the material and information flow; and distributing the product. This is supported by personal development opportunities in more generally applicable competencies such as statistical methods, quality management, business and industrial law and improving performance.
During the course you’ll develop the skills to evaluate, manage, and improve service, operational and supply chain processes, and conduct market analysis. Using enterprise resource planning systems, you will be able to improve the operational functions of a business and develop a broad understanding of strategy development and design.
Course structure and assessment
The curriculum is divided in nine taught modules (seven core modules, and two elective modules) and the project. After each taught module, you will complete a post-module assignment. Your project is worth 50% of your final grade and supports you in developing your personal research skills. Through your project you will have the opportunity to focus on a topic within an area of particular interest to you. This may be purchasing or outsourcing, material or production control, inventory reduction, material flow, warehousing and distribution, supply chain management, transport planning, product lifecycle management, reverse logistics, or one of many other related areas.
