Find out more about the TEF.

Our BSc Business & Supply Chain Management course is offered as either a three or four year course with integrated placement year. This course has been designed to give you the skills and experience you need to excel in your career as a supply chain professional.
Through the NOVUS Trust scheme, you could even be guaranteed a job on graduation as well as other valuable benefits.

You will develop a thorough understanding of supply chain management and everything that happens to ensure that companies can satisfy their customers’ needs and wants. You will explore the role of purchasing, manufacturing and logistics as well as the planning, organisation and resource management that is needed to manage a global supply chain. Effective supply chain management underpins the performance of retailers and manufacturers – it is essentially what they do, but they depend on talented professionals to achieve success and there is a well documented skills shortage in this area.

Key course benefits:

  • The course combines study of essential business management theory and practice in Aston Business School with specialist supply chain and industry expertise from our Engineering Systems and Management group, along with regular interaction with business.

  • This course is approved by the NOVUS Trust - an industry-led body dedicated to the development of new supply chain talent. Members include leading companies such as Sainsbury's, Morrisons, B&Q, Nestlé, Muller, PZ Cussons, DHL, Kuehne + Nagel and Wincanton.

  • Applicants to the course are eligible to be considered for membership of the NOVUS scheme. This can bring a wealth of benefits including guaranteed summer and third year placements through which you can gain valuable experience, professional mentoring to help you with your professional development and, best of all, the guarantee of a graduate job offer from a NOVUS company (on achieving at least a 2:1).
