Course summary

This course is designed to allow experienced supply chain professionals (as evidenced by MCIPS status) to “top-up” their existing qualifications and experience to a Masters Degree by completing two taught modules and an independent dissertation project.

The focus of this course is the development of advanced analytical and communication skills that allow graduates to critically engage with theory at the leading edge and apply it to their practice. Whether you choose to study the course at our Newport City campus or online, both modes are designed to fit around your existing work commitments. As this is a fast-track course, it can be completed in 12-18 months.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.

Careers

The course is aimed at experienced procurement and supply chain professionals who are likely to be in full time positions.

Possible career options for this course would be along the lines of: Head of Procurement, Procurement Manager and Supply Chain Director.
