Overview

The Operations and Supply Chain Management programme from University of Liverpool provides a theoretical and practical exposition of the factors that are necessary for effective operations and supply management in today’s global and highly competitive markets. In addition, it demonstrates how successful operations performance can shape and influence the sales and profit ambition of a business. You will develop a profound understanding of the processes and techniques for developing operations strategy and managing operations and supply chain activities.

You’ll gain:

  • The chance to learn via innovative teaching techniques including interactive games, cases and simulations
  • See real-world scenarios with industry visits
  • Support if you choose to work towards gaining full or chartered membership of our accrediting bodies. Graduates of the programme will be exempt from the academic requirements of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS, subject to renewal) and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport UK (CILT)
  • The opportunity to apply your knowledge by undertaking a work based project which is undertaken in conjunction with industry. Recent projects have been undertaken in collaboration with organisations including Bibby Distribution, Corus, Ford Motor Company, Hewlett Packard and Jaguar Land Rover. ‌

Career prospects

Operations and supply chains are essential to competitive performance. Opportunities are provided for participants of the programme to analyse and examine the most up-to-date, cross-sectoral developments in operations and supply chain practice through a series of industrial lectures and a best-practice industry visit. It is expected that programme graduates will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to reach senior managerial positions and become the operations, logistics and supply chain management strategists of the future. There are three main target groups. The first are graduates in management, engineering or science who wish to move to the area of Operations Management to improve employment prospects. 

The second group are practising operations professionals who wish to update or expand their knowledge of the area and its potential benefit to their businesses.  The third group are graduates, managers and professionals working outside of the Operations area who need or have a desire to appreciate the strategic and business implications of contemporary operations and supply chain management.

Graduates of the MSc in Operations and Supply Chain Management are now working for Bayer Healthcare Ltd, AMECO, MedAire, Jaguar Landrover, United Utilities, Colliers International, Gist Ltd, Ocado, and Bosch Global. Graduate roles include Purchaser Expert, Process Engineer, Supplier Management, Project Manager, and Import and Export Analyst.
