The MSc Management (Operations and Supply Chain) is designed for students who wish to grow into senior supply chain management or operations management industry leaders, and provides insights into current best practices regarding industry trends, digitisation and future projections.

There is a growing demand globally for graduates of an MSc in Operations and Supply Chain Management domain as supply chains are becoming more disrupted and highly complex due to challenges related to geopolitical events (i.e., Brexit, the Ukraine war, energy pricing, the growing conflict between China and the USA). Consequently, on a global basis, organisations are continuing to make strong efforts to make their operations and supply chains more resilient, and increasingly more adaptable.
