The MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management with Business Analytics is a brand new programme of study created by Heriot-Watt University to pass on cutting-edge expertise in Business Analytics and the use of Big Data whilst highlighting the role these disciplines play in developing effective and sustainable logistics and supply chain strategies.

In recent years, the logistics and supply chain sectors have adopted an increasingly data-driven focus, leading to a greater demand for graduates who can solve complex logistics and supply chain problems through the effective analysis of data. As industry has become increasingly data-driven so too has the work of Heriot-Watt University’s Logistics Faculty whose most recent research has resulted in significant advances in knowledge. Specifically, our academics have led the way in using data analytics and modelling techniques to develop logistics and supply chain solutions for in both public and private sector organisations.

The research of the Centre for Sustainable Road Freight, conducted in partnership with the University of Cambridge, aims to reduce the environmental impact of road freight and make it more cost-effective for some of the United Kingdom’s biggest organisations. This ensures that the big data and business analysis skills taught on this programme are highly applicable to the current needs of industry, having emerged directly from research which strives to find real-world solutions.

By incorporating this research-based knowledge in two new courses, MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management with Business Analytics will equip you with the analytical tools and techniques expected of graduates in the fast evolving logistics and supply chain sectors. Through the completion of six further courses, developed over 25 years within our established suite of masters degrees in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, you will gain extensive knowledge in the current concepts, theories and practices of logistics and supply chain management.

This combination of learning will provide you with the ability to make evidence-based management decisions through the sound analysis and interpretation of quantitative data related to logistics and supply chain management.
