Course summary

Programme overview

This specialist programme will appeal to graduates aiming for a managerial or consulting career within global operations, logistics or supply chain management in the private, public or third sector. You will learn how to manage and improve global supply chain operations and develop an appreciation of its role and function in the context of international organisations.

This new programme examines the effects of global trade and business and the significance of grand challenges, such as: increasing digitalisation and innovation in product/service development; ever more stringent international environmental sustainability regulation; and corporate social responsibility and ethics issues (eg modern slavery).

The programme reflects contemporary themes and developments within operations and supply chain management. You will discuss the latest understanding of how to manage global supply chains and acquire the skills and confidence to challenge, innovate and solve problems.

We enjoy close links with industry, government and growing social enterprise and voluntary sectors, providing opportunities to engage with supply chain professionals. We will be inviting sector experts to deliver guest lectures and there may be the possibility of taking part in a live consulting project with a client organisation.

You will engage with the 21st-century challenges of high-tech digitalisation, sustainability and global citizenship. You will apply your knowledge of global operations to solve business problems, subsequently improving your decision-making skills and practice capabilities. The knowledge and skills you gain will give you a competitive advantage in your future career.

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS). This means that on completion of the course students with the required work experience can apply to become full members of CIPS and will not need to take any further examinations.
