International Supply Chain Management

Whatever the industry, and whether operating globally or nationally, it's more important than ever for businesses to manage their supply chains and ecosystems carefully in order to succeed. Companies, government departments and international organisations cannot survive for long without rigorous, efficient and strategic management of supply chains and logistics. They need to demonstrate their resilience against disruption and adversity, the incorporation of new technologies, and the application of e-security, location and outsourcing decisions in a world of rapid technological change, global industrial restructuring and retrenchment and onset of dangerous climate change. On our one-year International Supply Chain Management MSc you'll gain a thorough understanding of the forces at work and knowledge of sophisticated tools to strategically manage both large, complex, technology-based supply chains, as well as more traditional ones. You'll cover logistics and procurement often across national boundaries, companies, regions and time-zones. Our focused and highly relevant curriculum is based on current thinking and real world experience and needs in managing supply chains globally as technologies, markets and the international business and trade environment are changing fast. You'll learn from senior academics and experienced practitioners, with input from CEOs and senior executives across a range of industries.
