PgCert International Logistics; International Supply Chain Management, MSC International Logistics; International Supply Chain Management
Our two masters degrees in International Logistics and International Supply Chain Management aim to create highly talented specialists with a unique blend of vision, practical experience, analytical skills and technological capability to take up pivotal sectoral roles.
Every day companies face the major challenges of increasing competition, more complex international supply networks and ever more demanding customers. Our two masters programmes, dealing with international logistics and supply chains, focus on these dynamic systems and their integral relationships.
In period one both programmes initially follow the same core module route in which you will study maritime finance and
business modelling; logistics; supply chains; international logistics and management; research skills and economics for
international supply chains. During this period you will also have the opportunity to study international logistics and maritime commerce in Plymouth or production control systems at Venlo in the Netherlands.
In period two, all students study in Plymouth before completing a final masters dissertation. They study another optional module, which could be port policies and management or shipping finance, management and law.
As an alternative to the year-long programme, you may also take the three periods in successive years. For example, year
one (September–December 2013), year two (January–April 2014) and year three (May–August 2015).
