The Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc (Executive) offers you the opportunity to study for an internationally recognised master's qualification. This part-time supply chain postgraduate course is designed to nurture your practical business skills and confidence. It also places a huge emphasis on real-world challenges and industry best practice which you can apply back to your own organisation.

It has been co-designed with senior supply chain practitioners and is delivered by one of Europe's largest specialist logistics, procurement, and supply chain management faculties.

You will benefit from a diverse student cohort and the faculty’s direct involvement with global businesses. On completion, you will have a deep understanding of contemporary business issues and a capacity to assume active leadership roles.

This part-time programme meets the requirements of the revised Level 7 Senior Leader Apprenticeship Standard. Eligible organisations can use £14,000 of their Apprenticeship Levy to cover Part I (The Senior Leader Apprenticeship) of the programme tuition fee. Part II (progression to Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc - Executive) can be funded by either your employer or by you.

This page is dedicated to students seeking the Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc (Executive) independent of Apprenticeship Levy funding. If you are looking for more information on our Apprenticeship Levy part-funded routes, please  view them here .
