MSc Supply Chain Management and Logistics aims to train future managers and researchers from a diversity of backgrounds with an academically challenging exposure to state-of-the-art mathematical methods of supply chain and logistics management. The range of subjects reflect the expertise and areas of research of the academic staff, and covers (but is not limited to) operations management, optimisation, simulation, risk management, and data mining methods.
The aims of the programme are to:Equip you in the quantitative and qualitative methods of supply chain management and logistics, enabling you to utilise the methods in practice and to contribute to future developments in the area; Provide you with the skills required for both designing and operating supply chains and logistics systems; Present you the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge and understanding in a chosen area of the supply chain management and logistics, while giving you a broader view of the subject matter with an interdisciplinary / multidisciplinary perspective; Support you to develop analytical and critical thinking, and fuse your qualitative and quantitative perspectives of supply chains and logistics systems; Enable you to undertake a substantial research project during your year of study, giving you the opportunity to learn as you apply.
You are expected to study the programme over one year full-time. The taught component consists of 30 study weeks divided into two semesters. The required workload of the taught component is 120 CATS (60 ECTS), which should be evenly distributed between the two semesters. In the first semester, you will select either two modules with 7.5 CATS or a single module with 15 CATS among the optional modules listed. In the second semesters, you will select either four modules with 7.5 CATS or a single module with 15 CATS and two modules with 7.5 CATS among the optional modules listed. Upon completing the taught component of the programme, you will undertake a three month period of supervised research for a Master’s dissertation, which accounts for another 60 CATS (30 ECTS).
