Course summary

On this course, you’ll learn how to manage an organisation’s involvement in global and international supply chains. Using facilities like our Technology Innovation Hub, you’ll discover how management techniques and supply chains keep business moving. You’ll study specialist modules on procurement and supply management, global logistics and port management, and supply chain sustainability and the environment. And you’ll also come to understand how businesses work as a whole – learning across different functions. We’ll use projects, case studies and industry collaborations to show you how what you’re learning actually applies in the real world. Extend your studies by spending a year on placement. Your placement is your opportunity to get some real-world work experience under your belt.
