Course summary

Overview As someone who works in operations, supply chain and logistics management, you can be the difference between success and failure for a business, and other organisations such as charities and governments. On this one-year MSc degree, you’ll be trained to be an industrial problem-solver, ensuring products and services are delivered efficiently, effectively, on time, and on budget with appropriate emphasis on complex supply chain/logistics strategies, and practical problem-solving approaches to contemporary and emerging issues. This degree is ideal if you have already studied supply chain or logistics management or operations management and want to take your skills to the next level. Equally, you might have a degree in IT, engineering, supply chain or logistics, operations management, finance, accounting, or general management. About This Course Every product or service that comes to market relies on the expert combination of human power, material resources and financial investment. As an MSc Supply Chain Operations and Logistics Management student, you’ll explore how to bring these elements together successfully. You’ll learn how to anticipate and respond to problems, and how to create order in the most complex situations. The course is carefully designed to help you understand the primary and supporting activities in a value chain, and operations, supply chain and logistics management practices. You’ll study key areas, such as inventories, materials management, procurement, transportation, warehousing, supply chain and logistics operations, sustainable / low-carbon supply chains and logistics, innovations and technology management, circular supply chains, and simulations in supply chain operations. You’ll also explore the application of technologies to supply chain and logistics management. Our teaching is research-led, including from UEA’s respected Innovation, Technology and Operations Management group (ITOM), ensuring you benefit from the very latest thinking in this rapidly changing field. Rather than relying solely on textbooks, you’ll be taught the latest supply chain, operations and logistics innovations reported in academic and practitioner journals. We have strong links to industry, and you’ll also learn from practising experts and guest speakers. You’ll learn by analysing case studies to gain valuable insights into real workplace problems and their possible solutions. This study of real-life and created cases means you can fast-track to having the kind of industry expertise that might otherwise take years to amass. Throughout your degree, you’ll take an international view, ensuring that you graduate ready to take your skills across borders. As well as developing essential specialist skills, this course will help you improve key transferable skills, including critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, decision-making, and effective use of information and communications technology. You’ll also build your experience in teamwork, management and giving presentations – including to non-supply chain / logistics specialists. This experience will give you an edge when you graduate. We can provide you with access to a UK-based company that’s facing a real business challenge. The insights you gather will form the basis of your dissertation, which will be brought to life by real-world examples. Together, the theoretical knowledge and practical experience you gain will help you demonstrate your full potential to future employers. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
