In the evolving and expanding global marketplace, organisations regularly compete through their supply chains. This makes logistics management a crucial element as businesses look to exploit the advantages offered by global supply chains and related supplier and customer networks. Logistics and supply chain management is no longer a 'back office' discipline, and the labour market and employers are fast realising the importance of having suitably qualified staff. From the outset, students have the opportunity to tackle subjects which underpin business logistics and supply chain practice, such as business finance, organisational behaviour, sustainability, and innovation. This can help students gain insight into best practices in logistics and supply chain management, recognising the complexities of modern global supply chains and the interconnected relationships among the different supply chain contributors and networks. Students can also develop their entrepreneurial skills and professional portfolios through problem-based learning, reflective practice, and business presentations, working independently and collaboratively. The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). How You Study In the first year, students can examine the core elements of logistics and supply chain management, with modules covering Organisational Behaviour; Data Analytics; Principles of Logistics and Supply Chain Management; Sustainable Business and Innovation; and an Introduction to Business Finance. The study moves to more complex aspects of management in the second year and includes areas such as Operations Management; Procurement and Supply Chain Management; Strategic Management; Supply Chain Information Management and Big Data. In the final year, students are able to specialise in areas including Humanitarian Logistics and Supply Chain Management; Managing the Business of Renewable Energy; and Managing the Food Supply Chain, all of which are designed to improve graduates' employability in a broad range of logistics sectors and disciplines. One-to-one support is available to develop understanding and learning in both the academic and practical sense. Individual feedback is available as students progress through the degree and is used to identify and resolve any learning issues.
