Overview

Overview

Integrate your business skills with mathematical analysis for a modern operational career with this MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management degree course. You'll explore the flow of information between suppliers, manufacturers, retailers and consumers, and find ways to streamline your company's activity for improved effectiveness and efficiency. 

You'll be working with quantitative data and analytical techniques, applying developments in logistics technology, and learning from professional research into the current issues in operations and supply chain management. You'll have access to industry-standard software such as Simul8, and to case studies drawn from live problems in the profession. You'll plan and produce a personal research-driven project, perhaps with an industrial partner organisation, and will study with lecturers who contribute to both the academic and industrial streams of this sector.

You'll graduate with all the tools required for a career in logistics and operations management, either in the UK or further afield.

You can start this course in September or January. 

Course highlights

  • Apply highly data-driven mathematical models to decision-making in the supply chain, so you can bring quantitative methods into your career in logistics
  • Study key topics in the field, including Logistics Modelling, Supply Chain Management and Strategic Logistics, as you develop your career skills in problem-solving and interpersonal communication
  • Use professional-standard simulation software and statistical packages in our computer labs
  • Work on real-life case studies, large-scale logistics problems, or active research projects in companies that collaborate with your lecturers 

Careers and opportunities

It's always been critical to most organisations, but the increasingly data-driven nature of logistics and supply chain management, or Logistics 4.0, demands a new kind of graduate who can apply mathematical principles and analysis to the industry. 

This degree's focus on mathematical problem solving and decision making will qualify you for a career in the traditional areas of manufacturing logistics, distribution and supply chain management on graduation. But you'll also have the skills and knowledge to work in industries such as quality control, facilities planning, postal and express delivery, the emergency services, the military and defence industry.
