Course summary

About the course

This course provides the essential framework concepts and toolkit required for the strategic management of humanitarian logistics and the supply chain. In addition to studying key skills concerning the effective and efficient management of the supply chain you will also learn about humanitarian problems caused by a range of current trends, such as migration in the Mediterranean, the use of chemical weapons, desertification and global inequality.

Within a business context, it is now recognised that one of the main ways in which competitive advantage can be gained, is through the effective and efficient management of the supply chain. The relationship between business and human rights is also increasingly raising profound and intriguing problems of law and policy. You will be challenged to consider how these potentially impact on the logistics sector, and best business practice, and will also have the opportunity to research one aspect of these themes in more detail.

Further Study

Opportunities for course progression include the traditional PhD or a Master’s by Research; a one year, full-time research degree. It contains little or no formal taught component and is attractive if you want a briefer research-based degree or prepare for a full PhD.

Research plays an important role in informing all our teaching and learning activities. Through research our staff and students are contributing to the latest developments in their field. Our guiding vision is to conduct research that promotes excellence in management thought, innovation and application.
