Course summary

This accredited Masters course will encourage and challenge you to develop your knowledge and skills in global procurement, logistics and supply chain management, while training you in the latest theories. The programme is highly practical looking at current issues with strong input from our industry partners. Teaching for this MSc degree is delivered part time in the evening, so you can fit your studies around work. Classes are held at the University of Salford’s Peel Park campus, close to Manchester city centre.

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 Logistics and Transport (CILT) at conferences, invited events and more. The programme is highly industry-focussed and culminates in the Industry Collaboration Project. You will choose one of four options to look at a real industry problem and provide researched solutions, helping you put your learning into practice.
