Summary

This programme will encourage and challenge you to develop your knowledge and skills in global procurement, logistics and supply chain management. Our teaching team is research active and you will learn from them the up-to-date theoretical knowledge in areas such as automation and artificial intelligence. You will also look at the opportunities and challenges provided by Big Data Analytics, the Internet of Things, additive manufacturing, 3D printing and robotics. Our expertise is supported by input from industry partners such as Jaguar Landrover, Brother International and Manchester Airport who have helped to develop the programme.

There is substantial technical context and input in the areas of Demand Forecasting, Inventory Management, Process/Supply Chain/Logistics Optimisation and Analytics. In particular, the module “Advanced Project and Logistics Management” brings together two very important skills widely sought after in the industry.

You will be encouraged to broaden your horizons by going beyond the academic literature to look at the very latest developments published in the relevant trade press. You will also be challenged to consider the ethical implications of global sourcing, for example looking at global catastrophic events in relation to production and service provision.

As well as learning from academics, you will have the opportunity to learn from other students, from expert guest lecturers and from your interaction with the two professional bodies, Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) and Chartered Institute of Logisitics and Transport (CILT) at conferences, invited events and more. The programme is highly industry-focussed and culminates in the Industry Collaboration Project. You will choose one of four options to look at a real industry problem and provide researched solutions, helping you put your learning into practice.

You will:

  • Enhance your employability through a CIPS and CILT accredited programme
  • Apply your learning in the Industry Collaboration Project
  • Explore the latest trade developments

TEACHING

Face to face teaching is delivered on campus for two half days each week. In addition, you will attend the taught element of the Industry Collaboration Project each Wednesday afternoon during the 6 week blocks, with independent study completed in your own time through the University’s virtual learning environment, Blackboard. Individual student timetables will be provided during induction week.

Teaching is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials, using a wide range of learning activities.

CAREER LINKS:

In the 21st century, this still holds strong. Whilst industry has changed significantly, the need for industry-focussed education is equally relevant today.
