Our MSc Management and Global Supply Chain Management course is a unique course for those considering a career within logistics, operations and supply chain management. You’ll explore the management of operations at a strategic level, before developing your understanding of the global supply chain and how organisations within it perform in relation to one another.
During your studies you will be firmly rooted in understanding the global supply chain and we’ll provide you a broad knowledge of the principles and concepts underlying the strategic and operational performance of organisations in relation to one another within the international supply chain. You’ll build on your practical skills by analysing realistic data to explore the questions you might confront in an operations role, and / or in a global supply chain environment.
Finally, in your third semester, you’ll choose an experiential project. With the opportunity to use your skills in a real-world setting, you can choose from completing a consultancy experience project, an internship experience project, a business research project or a global experience project.
When you graduate, you’ll receive both the Masters degree and a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) qualification in Level 7 Strategic Management and Leadership. Our partnership with the CMI means that you’ll enjoy complimentary student membership for the duration of your course, and for the first year after graduation.
