E-Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Supply chain networks and e-supply chain networks may be designed for services or manufacturing and be global or domestic in scale. They encompass the functions of procurement, production, distribution, and customer service and have a diverse range of styles and structures. The market for postgraduate qualifications in logistics and supply chain management (SCM) has been growing rapidly. Companies are demanding that senior managers are better qualified and better prepared to address the deeper issues involved in the twin goals of cost reduction and service enhancement. This programme offers a curriculum that includes many practical examples of logistics and SCM in action. We are 1 of very few university programmes in the UK which has been accredited by both the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS). This means that students are recognised by these professional bodies as holding their professional qualifications to full professional status level 6 upon completion of the Masters programme. Students participate in CILT and CIPS activities including the CILT student conference held on campus. Students visit industrial locations, have seminars given by guest speakers from industry and collaborate with business partners for dissertation projects. In the final stage of the programme, all students undertake a 1 week consultant project organised by the university. The aims of the programme are: To gain a systematic understanding of relevant knowledge about logistics and supply chain management organisations, external content and how they are managed; to be able to apply relevant knowledge to a range of complex situations taking account of relationships and interaction with other areas of business or organisations within logistics and supply chain networks; to obtain critical awareness of current issues in logistics and supply chain management and e-supply chain management which is informed by leading edge research and practice in the field.
