The MSc in Global Logistics, Operations and Supply Chain Management has been designed to enable you to acquire an in-depth understanding of the major areas of knowledge and philosophical approaches that underpin the concept of the Global Supply Process.

The programme philosophy is to develop this knowledge and understanding of the specialist area of supply change management, whilst placing it firmly within an organisational context. The key specialist modules are resultant from both academic and professional influence as to strategic change factors within the global supply process.

Teaching and Assessment

You will be taught through a mixture of lectures, seminars and workshops.

Assessment is based on exams and coursework, including presentations.

What Will I Study?

In addition to the development of both specialist and the wider organisational knowledge, Developing Global Management Competencies I and II will enhance your personal development through the acquisition of transferable, intellectual and personal skills, which is particularly focused on developing managers with both emotional, cultural and business intelligence.

The programme will facilitate the development of a critical appreciation and reflection of contemporary global supply chain process issues as well as provide opportunities to challenge established approaches to management and emerging paradigms (e.g. Sustainable Supply Chains), whilst enabling you to reflect upon your own personal development. The approach adopted of linking particular specialisms with general management theory and personal development is seen as major development need within the specialist management of Global Supply.

This course combines management studies with a strong specialist focus on operations, logistics and supply chain management (LCSM). The specialist LCSM modules cover strategic procurement, sustainable supply chains, improving the supply chain, and strategic partnerships. The course culminates in either a masters dissertation or, if you prefer, a consultancy project where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client.

This programme is also available as MSc Global Logistics, Operations and Supply Chain Management with Advanced Practice which includes either an internship or project.
