Summary

Do you want to gain the competitive edge for management roles in the logistics and transport sectors? Do you want to use data and analytics to improve business performance?

This course trains you in applying management techniques to solve business problems arising from supply chains, including areas such as transportation, warehousing and inventory and supplier relations. It has been designed with industry input in response to sector skills gaps and is located close to London’s major port, providing potential opportunities for site visits and placements.

Study areas may include:

  • global supply chain management, planning and control

  • international operations management

  • business analytics, applied statistics and forecasting

  • environmentally-friendly logistics

  • logistics planning and control

  • business strategy and strategic management

  • innovation management

In the summer, you undertake an applied research project about a real-world organisation or issue.

This course draws upon Essex Business School’s strengths in big data and analytics to help you be a more effective logistics manager.

We develop your practical skills in data analysis so you can better understand markets, consumers and competitors to improve business performance. Computer generated simulations expose you to a range of business scenarios, helping you to understand how managers and entrepreneurs use analytics to solve logistics problems.

Another unique feature of this course is a focus on green logistics, addressing employer needs for greater training in this area.

With organisations coming under increasing pressure to manage issues around waste, recycling, transportation and raw materials, many businesses lack qualified staff who can ensure compliance with environmental law. We can equip you with the knowledge and skills to design and operate efficient and sustainable supply chains and logistics networks to give you a distinct career advantage.
