Specialist modules cover strategic procurement and how to manage the sustainability, quality and risks of supply chains. You’ll develop your research skills through a master’s dissertation or an investigative consultancy project.
The course culminates in either a Masters dissertation or, if you prefer, a consultancy project. The dissertation is discipline specific, whilst the group consultancy project - where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client - is positioned in an area of relevance to the programme.
There is no requirement to have studied business or LCSM at undergraduate level.
The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015 and is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS).
- The Business with Logistics and Supply Chain Management course from Northumbria University includes two modules that are focused on developing global management competencies. Topics during these modules include emotional intelligence, cultural awareness and the ability to work in diverse groups and teams, as well as project management and decision making.
- A further module, ‘Academic and Professional Development’, has a specific focus on self-development. It includes formal sessions with our Careers and Employment Service which offers a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities.
- In the second year of the course you’ll be extending your international experience and widening your knowledge of business topics. You’ll develop an inter-cultural awareness that will help you stand out from other job applicants. Our network of partners and academic links will make it easier for you to find the right university in the right country to suit your interests and aspirations.
- A master’s course that takes two years, instead of just one, will carry particular weight with employers. They’ll understand that you’ll have a deeper understanding of topics as well as more experience.
