Course summary

This course is accredited by the internationally respected Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), our International Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc covers complex production flows, production processes, distribution and materials management, channels of supply, procurement strategies and logistics systems management in the UK and international logistics sectors. The term logistics addresses every aspect of operation of product-based and service industry sectors. International logistics can affect operations from the initial design process and sourcing of the raw materials and bought in components to the long-term satisfaction of the customer. Customer satisfaction is achieved by ensuring the supply of the right goods, in the right quantity, of the right quality, at the right price, to the right place, anywhere in the world, at the right time.

The programme is designed solely for distance learning, part-time study and utilises teaching and learning strategies and tools developed by the University for the delivery of similar programmes, including the virtual learning environment (VLE) Moodle, and the continuing personal and professional development tools available for an effective VLE. There is an emphasis on active and participative learning, as well as practical work, problem-based learning and group work, all of which will develop your analytical and decision-making skills. Throughout the programme, you will relate real-life problems to industry and commerce, as well as applying new technologies and techniques to solve present and future problems. This postgraduate programme is designed to allow maximum flexibility in learning to allow you to decide for yourself how and when it is most convenient to fit your studies around employment commitments.

Opportunity: Student Jobs on Campus ensures that our students are given a first opportunity to fill many part-time temporary positions within the University. This allows you to work while you study with us, fitting the job around your course commitments. By taking part in the scheme, you will gain valuable experiences and employability skills, enhancing your prospects in the job market. It will also allow you to become more involved in University life by delivering, leading and supporting many aspects of the learning experience, from administration to research and mentoring roles.
