This programme will encourage and challenge you to develop your knowledge and skills in global procurement, logistics and supply chain management. Our teaching team is research active and you will learn from them the up-to-date theoretical knowledge in areas such as automation and artificial intelligence. You will also look at the opportunities and challenges provided by Big Data Analytics, the Internet of Things, additive manufacturing, 3D printing and robotics. Our expertise is supported by input from industry partners such as Jaguar Landrover, Brother International and Manchester Airport who have helped to develop the programme.
There is substantial technical context and input in the areas of Demand Forecasting, Inventory Management, Process/Supply Chain/Logistics Optimisation and Analytics. In particular, the module “Advanced Project and Logistics Management” brings together two very important skills widely sought after in the industry.
You will be encouraged to broaden your horizons by going beyond the academic literature to look at the very latest developments published in the relevant trade press. You will also be challenged to consider the ethical implications of global sourcing, for example looking at global catastrophic events in relation to production and service provision.
As well as learning from academics, you will have the opportunity to learn from other students, from expert guest lecturers and from your interaction with the two professional bodies, Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) and Chartered Institute of Logisitics and Transport (CILT) at conferences, invited events 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.
International students should apply for the MSc route.
