Management and Global Supply Chain Management

Our MSc Management and Global Supply Chain Management course is a unique course for those considering a career within logistics management, operations management and supply chain consultancy.

It begins by exploring the management of operations at a strategic level, before developing your understanding of the global supply chain and how organisations within it perform in relation to one another. You will also undertake analysis with realistic data, tackling the type of questions you might face in an operations or global supply chain environment and building valuable practical skills.

You will study issues relating to strategic operations, operational decision-making, principles of management, as well as contemporary issues affecting these areas.

**Why study this degree?**
- You will complete a hands-on project, giving you a fantastic opportunity to use the theories and knowledge you've gained to produce a meaningful piece of work. Projects include the Consultancy Experience Project, Internship, Business Research Project and Global Experience Project.

- It is a conversion Masters and is therefore not restricted to students with a business or management related first degree.

- This route will both deepen your understanding of strategic operations across a range of sectors and use the supply chain as a basis for integrating your understanding of the other management functions.

- Typically, these routes are made up of students from over 25 different countries, which means you will have a truly international learning experience.

- You will complete a comprehensive development programme, which includes a short residential team-building course, normally held in the Peak District.

- NTU's teaching and learning is gold-rated by the government's Teaching Excellence Framework - that means you can count on outstanding teaching and learning, an education that's truly focused on the workplace, and fantastic support in and outside of the classroom.

- We are proud to announce that Nottingham Business School has been ranked amongst the top 100 universities globally in the Financial Times 2017 ranking for Masters in Management.

**Nottingham Business School is in the 1% of business schools worldwide to have both EQUIS and AACSB accreditation.**
