Operations and supply chain management are important areas for businesses to understand in order to deliver their products and services as effectively and efficiently as possible.

This programme equips students with the tools and expertise to manage supply chain processes and their connected operations in a global and increasingly digitalised marketplace. Monitoring risk, leveraging innovation and managing collaboration are some of the core themes embedded in this programme.

Programme Information

MSc in Operations and Supply Chain Management focuses on giving a rigorous and comprehensive introduction to the core tools, techniques and frameworks that can be used to leverage resource and flow efficiency in operations and supply chain processes, across both manufacturing and service dominated environments.
