Do you want a career where no two days are the same and where your communication skills and ability to think-up creative solutions will be highly valued?
Recent events such as Covid and Brexit have shown how vital our supply chains are. Ensuring the right products are in the right place at the right time and at the right cost is hugely important to life as we know it. What's more, we need to make sure those supply chains are sustainable and aren't harming our environment.
On this course, you'll learn risk management, strategic management, logistics management and how to procure goods and manage supply lines. You'll use professional software, systems and tools and explore the ethics and sustainability of global supply chains. You'll graduate with a set of management and specialist skills that will be hugely in demand in the workplace.
Stand out in the employment market with your knowledge of procurement; unlike many undergraduate supply chain degrees, this course has a real focus on global procurement (the sourcing and purchasing of goods), rather than purely the movement of goods (logistics)
