Course Summary

This course gives you the knowledge and skills required to manage global supply chains and associated logistics. This course is suitable for: recent graduates aiming a career in rapidly growing logistic and supply chain sectors; supply chain practitioners wanting to become specialists or managers; engineers and managers needing to develop their knowledge skills in logistics and supply chain management.

Developed by academics with extensive research and consultancy experiences, the course covers strategies, management, technology and systems. You learn modern approaches to supply chain management such as lean, six-sigma and operations management which are integral elements of the course. In modern supply chains, technology plays a critical role. For example, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is now widely used to track shipments through supply chain. This course covers essential technologies required to operate global supply chains which also include warehouse automation and transportation.

Modern IT systems integrate different elements of supply chain to provide the total visibility and information required to drive supply chain operations. The course uses the world’s leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform, SAP, to demonstrate how modern ERP systems are used to integrate supply chain operations. The dissertation project enables you to apply what you learn on the course. The course team has extensive links with the industry, which means it is likely that you will be able to work with a company during your dissertation. It is also possible to work on on-going research projects which are managed by the course team.
