Supply Chain and Logistics Management - MSc (Full-Time/Part-Time, 2019 Entry)

As our global reach becomes increasingly important, there is a need and opportunity for organisations to connect together to deliver added-value to the consumer through interlinked supply chains and efficient logistics.

The central content is the concept of a supply network: constructing the relationships that bring it into being; commissioning the technologies that enable it to operate; managing the input, the material and the information flow; and distributing the product.

During the course you’ll develop the skills to evaluate, manage, and improve supply chain processes, strategy design and development, and the operational functions of businesses.

We blend lectures with seminars, practical exercises, case studies, simulations, and industrial games to encourage teamwork and practical grounding of the course material. Technology enabled learning, e-learning and forum activities also support classroom learning. Class sizes are kept small with around 30 students in each, to encourage interaction. Larger scale lectures are delivered for some modules and are backed up by seminar and syndicate activities.

Contact Hours:

40 hours per week during module weeks (9.00am – 6.30pm).
Occasionally, modules may be split over two weeks of 20 hours per week.

There are 9 x modules over the course of the year. Between modules, you will have workshops, supervisor meetings, industrial visits and will be working on Post Module Assignments and your dissertation.

Class Sizes:

Lectures (occasional): up to 200 students

Seminars and the majority of classroom based modules: 30 students per class

Workshops and other syndicate activities: 6-8 students per group


There are no written exams. After each module you will be assessed by a written post-module assignment (PMA). This typically requires 40 – 60 hours of work and consolidates your learning. Some modules will also include an in-module individual or group assessment or test.

  • 9 x Post Module Assignments (3,000 – 4,000 words each) (50% of Master’s credit)
