MSc in Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Manchester Metropolitan University


Modern business practices rely on accurate logistics and reliable, dependable supply chains. The smooth operation of these crucial aspects of company operations affects the profitability and reputation of any organisation that supplies business-to-business or business-to-consumer.

Accredited by The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and The Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS), this course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed by this fast-paced industry. Alongside topics such as strategic sourcing, contract and stakeholder management, and risk management, you also study information technology and information systems. This reflects the revolutionary impact the internet and e-commerce have had on logistics and supply chain management and how they continue to drive innovation.

You also engage in contemporary issues that influence industry practices such as ethical sourcing, reducing CO2 emissions and government policies that affect transport and infrastructure investments (road, rail, aviation and maritime).

During your studies, you will have the opportunity to participate in industry visits for a behind-the-scenes look at successful businesses and global brands. The Business School also supports students who wish to take part in short-term internships with local employers, live business projects or a live consultancy project for the final dissertation (please note that these are subject to availability and are dependent on the student finding their own client to work to work for).

Open to graduates holding degrees in any subject, this course assumes no prior knowledge of business or management and is suitable for both UK, EU and international students wishing to progress their academic knowledge of logistics and supply chain management.
