You will learn how to critically evaluate the contribution of global logistics and supply chain to an organisation's competitive advantage and improve your ability to recognise and implement sustainable approaches to supply chain management.

You will learn about the approaches, skills and methods of effective project management, and the tools and techniques required for planning, control, teamwork, leadership and other key processes. All of these qualities will develop your ability to lead complex projects.

Customer and Supplier Engagement

Customers and suppliers are key stakeholders of most organisations and the marketing and supply chain management functions are the external interfaces for firms to engage with these respective stakeholders. This module will not only develop your understanding of marketing and supply chain management but will also enable you to develop a critical awareness of the collaborative and integrative synergies between these functions, which are often portrayed as being at opposite ends of an organisation's value chain, in the international business environment.
