Aims

By agreement with the Course Director, one elective unit may be taken from another Masters course - note that all elective units are subject to availability, timetabling constraints and what you have studied previously.

Over the summer period, you will carry out your Research Dissertation, worth 60 credits. Certain units must be chosen in order to become a member of CIPS, and the dissertation must be on a procurement and supply-related theme.

 Examples of recent dissertation project topics include:

  • The future green supply chain in the retail industry: a shared value strategic perspective
  • Evaluation of cost performance in inventory management in reverse logistics
  • Using e-procurement to improve supply chain management practices
