The hallmark of our MSc Supply Chain Improvement is its emphasis on helping organisations to improve their efficiency and performance. We will equip you with the skills, knowledge and insights to deliver such improvements through more effective supply chain design and management.

Smooth movement of the supply chain is pivotal to business efficiency. On this dynamic applied programme, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the systems, processes and modelling techniques which drive innovation and competitiveness.

Drawing on supply chain and logistics scenarios from your own and other organisations, you’ll build the skills to pinpoint inefficiencies, plot strategies for improvement and ensure optimum supply chain performance. You’ll be challenged intellectually but will also experience the practicalities of the business, applying the latest theory to real-world problems. The course also gives you the chance to focus on a particular area – such as procurement or warehousing and distribution – to match your personal interests and career ambitions.

The supply chain sector is poised for rapid growth and provides exciting openings for well qualified managers locally, nationally and worldwide. Graduates of our MSc Supply Chain Improvement can advance their careers in many areas of supply chain management, taking up roles in operational management, business analysis and consultancy or specialising in areas such as distribution and logistics or procurement. Students already working within the sector will find this MSc strengthens their CV and accelerates their career progression to senior management roles in supply chain operations, project management and strategic operations.
