Our Supply Chain Management course explores the factors contributing to business success, particularly the role of management. We place emphasis on the application of models and techniques necessary to achieve superior performance in business organisations. You will develop your analysis and planning skills and further you ability to solve business and management problems.

This course will give you a solid grounding in supply chain management theory and how to apply this theory to the management of supply chains in a wide range of sectors and environments. You will learn how to communicate persuasively, use ICT to improve your personal productivity and collect, analyse and critically interpret data.
