Supply chains are not just about buying – they also involve operations management, logistics, and project management.
This growing specialist area is a key part of any business. Supply chain managers handle the majority of an organisation’s spending and they control international logistics.
This degree was designed in partnership with the sector’s leading professional body, the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS). CIPS has also named us a Centre of Excellence. This is one of the few degrees in the UK to be fully accredited by the CIPS and that leads to MCIPS. This will enhance your CV and is essential for many jobs in the sector.
You’ll gain experience of working with industry, either through a year-long sandwich placement, an internship or an employment experience project. This BA (Hons) Logistics and Supply Chain Management project module has input from employers, so you’ll also know what is expected of you when you graduate.

Learning and teaching methods
Having a mixture of general and specialist modules reflects real life – you will learn what different parts of a business do and how they work together. You will be taught by a team of experts, who bring the latest developments direct to the classroom. As well as this latest research, you will regularly have input from key organisations who set student projects, so you can use business theories to solve actual problems.
The University also has the The Procurement Best Practice Academy which carries out research and consultancy. This means that the latest research and industry best practice are used to teach students.
By the time you graduate, you will have the knowledge and ability to work in many business areas, but particularly in the management of supply chains and logistics. These managers have responsibility for everything from purchasing power to negotiating with suppliers and distributors, or controlling the international movement of goods. Valuable and important elements of this course, such as CIPS accreditation and work placement opportunities, mean you will have the edge when you compete for graduate jobs.
Salaries for heads of purchasing are well ahead of the national average, and they now top the league and are generally more highly paid than marketing, HR, finance, IT and sales (CIPS Salary Survey, 2013).
