Logistics Management

This programme provides students with both the systematic acquisition of advanced academic knowledge and the support to explore and develop high-level skills in the field of logistics management. These skills are becoming more and more important in an expanding market, with the inevitable challenges brought about by the globalisation of operations. Traditional discussions on reconciling challenging demand with constrained supply, and designing and implementing effective and efficient organisational structures are considered in the curricula. Other contemporary issues that are at the heart of our modules and distinguish our program from other institutions involve how to build resilience in supply chains; exploring SME collaborative approaches to improve their entry in currently unbalanced food supply chains, and the multi-faceted experiences that constitute expeditionary logistics. The programme acts as a catalyst for change at both a personal and organisational level, and it is intentionally designed for those striving towards the improvement of individual and collective performances.

Entry requirements

Applicants may have backgrounds in a variety of subject areas, such as engineering, mathematics, economics, business studies, geography, planning or social studies.

Assessment methods

For the dissertation students will be expected to undertake a piece of research to produce 15,000-20,000 words.
