Course summary

This dynamic course combines management studies with a strong specialist focus on global logistics, operations and supply chain management.

We welcome applications from both business and non-business graduates, with an interest in a specialist Masters’ education. You will develop your operation, production, service management, leadership competence and confidence within a business context. We will focus on applying these skills globally and in manufacturing, service and public sectors in order to prepare you for a high earning career in business.

The specialist logistics, operations and supply chain management modules cover strategic procurement and logistics, sustainable supply chains and risk management, improving the operations and supply chain, and strategic partnerships.

Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms and so this course will appeal to various types of learners. You will have the option of finalising your studies with a traditional Master’s dissertation or, a more hands-on consultancy project, where you will tackle an issue faced by a real client.

On the programme, you will gain an appreciation of the interaction between strategic procurement and logistics management. Focus is given to processes that add value through the production and delivery of services and products in the supply chain, and the tools needed for effective process management.

You will learn the fundamental principles of contemporary Supply Chain Risk Management and Sustainable Supply Chain Management, within a business context. Learning these skills will enable you to help organisations achieve a sustainable, competitive advantage as part of their movement towards realising 'triple bottom line' (TBL) benefits.

The course boasts multiple accreditation's including; The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) and The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (UK) (CILT).

You will also benefit from the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015

If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

Your Career

The course includes a focus on developing leadership and management competencies. Topics studied include emotional intelligence, intellectual competence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams.
