Course content

Developed in partnership with Arnhem Business School (HAN University, Netherlands), this international degree will develop your ability to initiate and carry out advanced analysis, research and problem solving in the field of logistics and supply chain management.

You will study the first semester at the University of Westminster, and then have the choice either to continue studying in London or to spend the second semester at our partner institution in the Netherlands. You will not only benefit from the wider range of module choices, but also from the opportunity to study in two countries.

During the third semester you will work on a research-based dissertation. It is expected that you will spend the equivalent of three to four months' full-time work on this research. The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT ), and graduates are exempt from the Institute's exams.
