About this Course

This Bachelor of Business Honours Degree Award in Global Supply Chain Management (1-year) is designed to broaden and deepen the knowledge and skill base of graduates of the NMCI/CIT L7 SCM degree. This programme will also appeal to Business, Engineering and IT graduates (L7/L8/L9) who have some experience of Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

Supply chain graduates and their companies have shown particular interest in enhancing their knowledge of issues such as international customs regulations, strategic management of global logistics and supply chain and transport planning management.

This one-year programme, delivered in evenings and some weekends, is a product and service-focused L8 programme where students gain valuable knowledge and skills in key subject areas which are relevant to managing global logistics and supply chain networks for multinational corporations in the medical device, pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, electronics, energy, sectors and the third party and fourth-party logistics providers and service companies that support these sectors.

Integral elements of this one-year Springboard programme are the blended delivery involving online delivery (at least 60%) of modules and supplemented with class tutorials. The programme is focused on continuing professional development (CPD), incorporating skills training in:

Effective interpersonal communication
Teamwork
Analytical thinking
Creative problem solving
Negotiation management
Business acumen

This programme is comprised of 12 modules (60 Credits), many from our full-time Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Operations and Supply Chain Management course and chosen to meet the needs of the Expert Skills reports (Brexit, 2018; FTDL, 2015 & FTDL Steering Group, 2019/2020). The programme will be delivered over three semesters with the third semester dedicated to a dissertation.
