Overview

Competition and the globalisation of supply markets are redefining the way modern supply chains and logistics are managed. Companies who outsource need flexible and responsive supply chain and logistical operations which deliver added value to their customers with an increasing focus on protecting the environment.

These can lead to sustainable competitive advantage which in turn enables long-term growth and profitability. The growth and success of Amazon illustrates the huge potential of supply chain management and logistics.

To create and sustain such competitive advantage, organisations need highly trained individuals capable of developing diverse, bespoke and innovative supply chain and logistical solutions.

Developed in collaboration with current industry partners, this MSc Supply Chain Management and Logistics addresses the growing demand for highly trained individuals by seeking to develop professionals with up-to-date knowledge, skills and capabilities in the key areas of strategic supply chain management, logistics, sourcing, procurement, contracts, ecommerce, forecasting and environmental management.

Reelika Bilan

Staying to do my PG at Coventry just made sense

We caught up with Reelika Bilan an alumni from Coventry University about her experience of studying a postgraduate degree in Supply Chain Management and Logistics with us. Read her story.

What our alumni say

I found the course incredibly helpful; opening doors across material planning and logistics and giving me the academic knowledge to excel. Additionally, thanks to the number of interactions with and trips to various manufacturing companies, I was able to gain a broad spectrum of knowledge to demonstrate to employers and apply in the future.

On the whole the lecturers were outstanding, especially the course leaders who showed outstanding knowledge of their respective fields. Additionally they were approachable at all times, and helpful with all questions asked of them, especially when working on dissertation projects.

All in all I can highly recommend the course and university, it has immeasurably helped me to move forward in my career, and will be something I draw upon for many years to come.

Course information

MSc Supply Chain Management and Logistics aims to introduce the most current practices and concepts of supply chain management and logistics (SCML), combining them with a solid grounding in core management subjects. You should develop the skills and expertise to think critically, analyse problems and make informed recommendations. We aim to teach you how to implement and oversee SCML strategies across a broad range of functions, involving multiple organisations and locations.

You will be required to look at the wider aspects of business, in order to be able to integrate supply chain and logistics strategy and operations within the overall business strategy. This includes understanding the associated ethical and legal aspects, together with different models of change management and their relevancy and efficacy within organisations.

In a society in which consumers are continually demanding innovative products, faster response times, more product variety and increased performance and quality, all at a competitive price, never has there been a greater need for qualified graduates who can deliver effective and efficient SCML. From reducing costs and organising more efficient production and logistical systems to providing greater customer value, improved service and overall satisfaction, there exist many opportunities for disruptive change and improvement. These opportunities will be explored throughout the course.

We will consider the lean concepts, tools and techniques which can be applied to improve supply chain and logistical performance, as well as techniques of quality management and continuous improvement, such as Kaizen. You will be taught to evaluate supplier performance and select the appropriate problem solving tools and techniques to address issues and manage improvements in supplier operations, logistical processes, business systems and supply base capability development. We will look at emerging trends, for example, the influence of the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT), Industry 4.0 and the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) developments on the supply chain and logistics technologies of the future.

Your learning will culminate with a research project/dissertation, giving you the opportunity to do in-depth research in your preferred area of SCML alongside an experienced academic supervisor who will guide and advise you. Examples of past topics covered include an analysis of the implications of Industry 4.0 on SCM, an exploration of the connected car supply chain of a German original equipment manufacturer, a study of the evolution of agile management practices in procurement, and a proof of concept of running repetitive flexible supply with a third party manufacturer in the cosmetics industry.

This course includes the Global Professional Development - Consultancy module developed in partnership with the Chartered Management Institute.

Coventry University’s accreditation with CMI is currently ongoing for the relevant modules, but is frequently reviewed and monitored by the CMI through their quality systems. If any changes occur with respect to our accreditation related to these modules, we will seek to notify applicants and students as soon as possible.

Many of these quantitative tools can be used for management decision making, forecasting and as predictive models.
