About this program
Sustainable Supply Chain Management (MSc)
Supply chain managers are at the cutting edge of innovation, employing the latest technologies including artificial intelligence, block chain, big data analytics and automation to deliver their products and services effectively and efficiently.
The underside of such innovation is not nearly as progressive. Fierce competition within supply chains means that prices are driven down through outsourcing and subcontracting. In this race to the bottom, sustainability and ethics are often afterthoughts.
The business of changing the world is ours.
Our MSc in Sustainable Supply Chain Management has a unique focus on sustainability and ethical trading. We’ll help you become a professional capable of making decisions that consider the full range of economic, social and environmental impacts of supply chains.
Our experts will draw on academic and consultancy expertise to prepare you for global career opportunities, introducing you to all aspects of supply chain management, including procurement, supply and distribution of products. They’ll use internationally recognised research to give you a critical insight into cross-cutting issues such as the impact of technology, emergency and humanitarian operations, and environmental performance and responsibility.
Candidates will normally have the equivalent of a 2:1 degree (GPA 3.0/4.0) from a recognised institution in related discipline e.g., Supply chain, Logistics and/or Operations Management, Engineering, Business/Management, Computer Science, Economics, Trade or Finance.
In exceptional cases candidates can be considered with other degrees, e.g. English, Physics, Social Sciences or Humanities, particularly where there is evidence of significant professional experience in a relevant occupation.
Non-graduates with professional qualifications or significant work experience may also be considered.
Applicants whose first language is not English are required to obtain a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each sub score (or an equivalent English language qualification).
