Why Study MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management?

The MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management course at the University of Bolton is designed for graduates who wish to develop their skills from an international perspective. If you dream of widening your prospects and expanding your reach, this programme is for you.

With key themes in the future of the supply chain being globalism and sustainable practice, it’s vital to upskill and make sure your CV is relevant. Furthermore, global companies need to make their supply chains more resilient in a post-Covid world, and that means on-boarding highly skilled experts.

Here are just a few of the reasons for doing a master’s in supply chain and logistics.

Progress into higher management

If you are looking to climb the ladder at work, a master’s can set you apart, giving you a competitive edge. Our degree course helps you build your business acumen, as well as soft skills such as teamwork, collaboration, people management and leadership skills.

Our dedicated Employability Team is there to support your career ambitions, and our passionate tutors will tailor the modules to fit in with your professional development needs.

A 2020 report by the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) also suggests that postgraduates earn on average 18% more than first degree holders, just six months after graduation. So if you want to boost your earning potential, investing in yourself is key.

Open new doors (globally)

Because our course is taught from a global perspective, students will get the chance to understand their role and the impact they have when working with suppliers and manufacturers in other countries.

As globalisation takes hold, having this knowledge will be more important than ever. With industries being more and more connected through technology, building overseas relationships and ensuring seamless goods transportation is essential.

Modules include global trade and requirements of the industry, risk mitigation and the role of information within international supply networks, as well a comprehensive overview of the industry worldwide.

Our programme creators also have over a decade’s experience delivering supply chain programmes with partners in Malaysia, Botswana, Zambia and Malawi, so there’s a strong international focus and our aim is to prepare you for working within a global marketplace.

Enter the most competitive fields

Having a master’s degree in supply chain management and logistics puts you in a good position to go for jobs within competitive sectors or highly sought after international corporations.

While this is generally an under-resourced business sector and graduates with expertise in this area are increasingly in demand, working for top companies (such as FTSE 500) means having something to stand out from the crowd.

Our research and well-established links with professional bodies means that our modules are extremely relevant to what’s needed in the industry right now. We introduce our students to the latest innovations and concepts, giving them the upper hand when it comes to entering the jobs market.

As well as business globalisation, another theme that’s important is sustainability. This is something that every company, every brand and every consumer wants to see. From how things are packaged and shipped to more efficient processes, everything needs to be simplified and streamlined.

This makes your role a big part of facilitating an eco-friendly future, and companies are looking for graduates with the right skills in this area.

Our master’s programme covers topics in sustainable business operations, ensuring that students are aware of the most up-to-date policies, technologies and techniques.

 

Does this course sound like it’s for you? At the University of Bolton, we rank No.1 for Teaching Quality and Student Experience in Business Courses.* So there’s nowhere better to begin your journey into upskilling in the lucrative and fast-evolving field of logistics.
