This course combines management studies with a strong specialist focus on operations, logistics and supply chain management (LCSM). LCSM has been voted by the UK’s top 10 food retailers as their most vital management area.
The specialist LCSM modules cover strategic procurement, sustainable supply chains, improving the supply chain, and strategic partnerships. The course culminates in either a master’s dissertation or, if you prefer, a consultancy project where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client.
The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) which will give you extra credibility in the eyes of potential employers.
Additionally the course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.
Our graduates typically go into graduate positions in areas such as operations management, materials management, purchasing and quality management. Roles of recent graduates include supplier quality manager, transport consultant, distribution services manager, e-commerce operations manager, freight account manager and logistics project manager.
If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.
The course could also lead you to a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate.
Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
