Course summary

Our MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management will give you skills in creating, managing and communicating useful insights from big data and using them to support decision making in logistical operations - skills which are vital for successful organisations all around the world.

It’s an exciting time to start a career in logistics and supply chain management. As the volume and speed of goods and services flowing across global networks continues to grow, businesses of all sizes are beginning to harness the potential of using big data and analytics.

Our MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management will develop your understanding of modern logistics and supply chain systems and the range of managerial decisions related to the planning and operations of these. You will explore how human behaviour influences the performance of operations processes and you will gain knowledge of a broad range of analytics techniques and develop strong modelling skills.

During the summer you will undertake a supervised consulting or research project. Consulting projects address practical problems in organisations and provide you with an opportunity to apply the latest analytics tools to a real logistics or supply chain context. Research projects typically focus on theoretical or methodological developments within logistics and supply chain management and offer ideal preparation if you wish to later progress to a PhD.

You will be taught by our group of internationally recognised experts from the Management Science and Operations Group and the Logistics and Transportation Analytics Research Interest Group who are actively working with businesses, government and non-profit organisations to tackle routine, strategic and policy problems. In practical sessions, you will get hands-on experience of using software packages that are commonly used in logistics and supply chain management, such as SAP and SAS.

We have an advisory group of industrial collaborators for our MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management who provide guidance on practical relevance and contribute to the curriculum by delivering workshops and guest talks. Our collaborators include logistics and supply chain professionals in big businesses and large public organisations, as well as analytics technology providers for logistic and supply management tools.
