Key features

  • Bridge the gap from your previous studies or work experience and acquire the specialist knowledge that will help you to join this rapidly growing industry. This programme is designed to be accessible to you, welcoming applicants from a broad range of undergraduate disciplines.
  • Lead the way in the industry by learning to view the supply chain and logistics sector with a distinctly contemporary eye – sustainability and environmental issues are embedded in all our modules, increasing your employability and better preparing you for the challenges that climate change presents the industry.
  • Examine the latest regulatory and governance in supply chains placing your knowledge and skills at the leading edge of the sector.
  • Take advantage of our programme of visiting speakers, and gain insider knowledge and important networking contacts to ensure you’re ready to enter the workplace immediately upon graduation.

Careers include opportunities in supply chain coordination in Europe as well as worldwide. Our postgraduates start on a salary that is significantly higher than that of undergraduates. Likely employers include Amazon, Procter & Gamble (P&G) and Unilever.

This programme is an excellent preparation for both an academic career, for example a PhD in Operations and Supply Chain Management, as well as a managerial career. This programme is based entirely on coursework.

The design of our postgraduate programmes focuses on four taught modules and a capstone project. We believe that simplicity in programme design provides you with a better learning experience. The dynamic and challenging nature of contemporary business does not isolate concepts into small packages – and neither do our programmes. This approach links concepts together as they are in the real world, and enables you to focus in on what really matters.
