About

Become a supply chain manager of the future and learn from academics at the forefront of their field in this MSc Sustainable Supply Chain Management from Cardiff University.

Overview

Supply chain managers are at the cutting edge of innovation, employing the latest technologies including artificial intelligence, block chain, big data analytics and automation to deliver their products and services effectively and efficiently.

The underside of such innovation is not nearly as progressive. Fierce competition within supply chains means that prices are driven down through outsourcing and subcontracting. In this race to the bottom, sustainability and ethics are often afterthoughts.

The MSc Sustainable Supply Chain Management from Cardiff University has a unique focus on sustainability and ethical trading. We’ll help you become a professional capable of making decisions that consider the full range of economic, social and environmental impacts of supply chains.

Our experts will draw on academic and consultancy expertise to prepare you for global career opportunities, introducing you to all aspects of supply chain management, including procurement, supply and distribution of products. They’ll use internationally recognised research to give you a critical insight into cross-cutting issues such as the impact of technology, emergency and humanitarian operations, and environmental performance and responsibility.

Careers and placements

At Cardiff Business School, you’ll receive a career-changing education from world-leading academics that have different points of view. They’ll challenge your thinking as you consider the world of business from a range of alternative perspectives.

On our MSc in Sustainable Supply Chain Management, you’ll benefit from the knowledge and expertise of our Career Enhancer Team. They’re ready and waiting to identify events and opportunities to help you achieve your future aspirations.

We’ve developed relationships that range from the largest multinationals to the smallest micro-businesses, and include a wide variety of social enterprises and cooperatives. We use these networks to deliver value for our students through:

  • collaboration with our Public Value Entrepreneurs in Residence
  • guest lectures from Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport members

This wide ranging and varied learning experience will help enhance your career and demonstrate how you can make a difference along the way.

Our MSc Sustainable Supply Chain Management will give you the opportunity to follow a wide variety of careers with global multi-national companies or smaller SME enterprises.

You'll be equipped to take up both leadership and operational positions, as well as pursuing policy-making and academic career paths – a number of former students on related programmes have subsequently completed their PhD in a related subject.
