MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management
This programme provides a deep understanding of the management, planning and coordination of supply chains; an area which is essential to the success of any organisation operating on a global scale.
You gain the skills and knowledge necessary to develop effective and efficient supply chains. You come to appreciate the increased consumer demand and competitive pressures that have resulted from globalisation, and how you can help businesses to respond to constantly changing market conditions. The academic content is enhanced through the insights of industrialists and practitioners and practical projects, which cover real-life logistics and supply chain problems.
You also benefit from the vast expertise and resources of the recently opened Logistics Institute, a world-class facility based in the Business School. The programme links with the MSc Radio Systems and Logistics Technology, and cross-disciplinary dissertation projects are available.
