Course summary

In a world of increasing globalisation, there is a need for world class operations managers who can work effectively in an international business environment.

On this programme, you will study in depth the function of operations management and its role within a successful organisation. You will look at managing operations and complex situations while developing the skills to work closely with marketing and sales, research and development, procurement and supply chain functions. There is a high level of technical input and your learning will be informed by examples from numerous manufacturing and service settings.

Salford Business School is at the forefront of preparing the next generation of business managers. You will look at how technology such as automation and artificial intelligence is driving Industry 4.0 and the opportunities and challenges provided by Big Data Analytics, the Internet of Things, the Digital Economy, Drone Applications, 3D Printing, Robotics, Augmented Reality and more.

The programme is highly industry-focussed and culminates in a period of time on work experience. You can choose between a 9-12 month paid placement or the 3-6 month Industry Collaboration Project. Whichever you choose, you will put into practice the knowledge that you've learned.

CAREER LINKS

The University of Salford grew out of the institutes of the late 19th century that provided a talented, technically proficient and professional workforce to support the UK’s rapidly growing industries. In the 21st century, this still holds strong. Whilst industry has changed significantly, the need for industry-focussed education is equally relevant today.

We teach the skills that employers need and as a result, our graduates enjoy excellent international career prospects.

The curriculum across our postgraduate courses balances academic teaching and professional experience. Our industry partners give us their input into the curriculum so that the teaching reflects industry’s current and future needs and you develop the skills that employers want. The Industry Collaboration Project or Industry Placement year, which form the final part of your study, are designed to give you real-world experience so you can apply the theory you have learned.

Students will also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
