In an increasingly interconnected global economy, businesses in all markets must compete in complex supply networks in order to survive and prosper. The effective management of supply chains including logistics is recognised as a key factor in sustaining a company's competitive advantage.
Combining both knowledge and practical tools and techniques of supply chain and logistics, you will apply this to complex global, international, regional and national settings. You will engage in a range of specialist learning which is integrated with a range of core business topics, such as strategy and the improvement of business processes.
Suitable for people from a range of business backgrounds, our course is designed for both procurement professionals and those wishing to develop a career in supplier management and logistics. It is also suitable if you are from a marketing background or want to widen your business knowledge and profile.
As the course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS), and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), this will enable you to gain the academic element needed to achieve Professional Membership status of CIPS/CILT, and also offers free student membership of CIPS.
You will also have the opportunity to attend and engage in professional networks and regional events as part of the accreditation. You will learn with and from supply chain professionals providing you with valuable opportunities to develop your expertise and career networks.
