University of London unveils supply chain management degree
A brand new degree from the University of London, delivered in partnership with City – University of London’s Cass Business School – aims to give students a 360 degree perspective and learn about the managerial and analytical tools to manage global supply chains.
The MSc in Supply Chain Management and Global Logistics will also help students learn how to successfully lead supply chains of the future by creating cultural of innovation and adopting latest technologies in all sectors of their organisation.
Co-Programme Director Dr Byung-Gak Son stressed the importance of an effectively managed supply chain, which contributes immensely to the success of global companies like Amazon, Unilever, Nike and The Coca Cola Company.
“Given the enormous challenges of increasingly global and fragmented supply chains, we professionals require a sound understanding of emerging opportunities and risks and the knowledge and tools to handle them,” said Son.
“Our degree was developed as a result of rigorous research that we carried out to identify the skills needed by large organisations to successfully manage their supply chains. As a result, we aim to combine a comprehensive understanding of the subject and related disciplines with in-depth knowledge in relevant specialised areas such as innovation and technology management, supply chain finance or analytics.”
Sam Brenton, Director of Educational Innovation and Development, University of London, said: “We know that today’s professional learners value flexibility and choice. With our unique model, students on the MSc can study entirely online, or with local tuition from our global network of teaching centres.
“Academic direction is provided by the renowned Cass Business School, part of City, University of London and one of the world’s leading business schools. We look forward to welcoming our first cohort of students in April, as they study for a prestigious University of London degree anywhere in the world – at work, from home or on the move.”
Applications are now open, and close on Monday 4 March 2019.
