The MSc in Sustainable Supply Chain Management is a comprehensive programme that helps students gain the knowledge, theory and skills behind the management of resources, relationships, suppliers and customers within business networks. Prospective students from all disciplines targeting the Supply Chain Management profession can apply to take this programme. The programme will provide students with a 360-degree view of the profession, from supplier development and management, through to innovation generation, customer relationship management and sustainability.

We value interactive and collaborative learning and a diverse and engaged classroom. We strive to graduate informed, agile, critical thinkers and doers. Our graduates will possess cutting-edge knowledge in the field of supply chain management and operations (education and subject/discipline/professional values).  

We aim to provide a learning environment that encourages students to deeply engage with the material covered in each module and to actively draw on the collective experiences of their fellow students. Seminars, workshops and application-based activities are key elements in the programme design (the nature of the learning environment for students).

In addition to lectures and workshops, students work individually and in small groups on projects, case studies, simulations and class presentations. Students will gain market-relevant experience and the benefit of professional know-how via a consulting project conducted with a leading MNC. Assessment is through a blend of continuous assessment and end-of-semester examinations. Continuous assessment includes both individual and group work (key approaches to teaching, learning and assessment).
