Supply chain management is becoming an increasingly important aspect of the business world. Products are sourced, manufactured and transported on a global scale, leading to the need for skilled professionals in this area. However, these professionals also need to be increasingly aware of the wider impacts of these activities, with a focus beyond just economic impacts.

The MSc Sustainable Supply Chain Management aims to provide the skills to enable supply chain managers of the future to thrive in this dynamic environment. Supported by world leading research in this area, the course provides you with the capability to make decisions that consider the full range of economic, social and environmental impacts of supply chains. The inclusion of sustainability as a key part of the course provides a distinguishing feature of this course.

You will study a range of taught modules that combine to give a comprehensive understanding of all aspects in sustainable supply chain management, including procurement, supply and the distribution of products, as well as tackling cross-cutting issues such as the impact of technology. At the end of the course, you are required to carry out a dissertation research study, providing an in-depth examination of an issue of your choice.

Rhagor o wybodaeth am ofynion Iaith Saesneg.

Mae'n rhaid i ymgeiswyr sydd angen fisa Haen 4 i astudio yn y DU gyflwyno cymhwyster iaith Saesneg derbyniol er mwyn bodloni gofynion UKVI (Fisâu a Mewnfudo y DU).

This course runs from September to September. Between September and June you will study 120 credits of taught modules from a range of both compulsory core modules and a range of options.

Following on from this taught stage, you will undertake a dissertation project, submitted in September, with support from an academic supervisor.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2019/20. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2019.

In the first semester, you will study four modules worth 15 credits each. Two compulsory modules aim to give you a detailed understanding of sustainability and supply chain management approaches. The remaining two modules are drawn from a range of options that complement the compulsory components.

You will also study four 15 credit modules in the second semester. Here, one compulsory module provides research methods training to particularly support the dissertation. The remaining modules are drawn from a pool of options. There is a requirement to undertake at least one optional module specifically on sustainable supply chain management. The remaining two choices can be drawn from a wider range, of which a number further develop insights into sustainable supply chain management.

The taught phase concludes in June and, subject to successful completion, you will progress to the dissertation phase. Through the writing of the dissertation, you will acquire and develop research skills relevant to your choice of subject. The dissertation is submitted in early September.  

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

Our teaching is heavily informed by research and combines academic rigour with practical relevance. Our internationally leading faculty consists of academics who are at the forefront of knowledge within their field. They bring the lessons learnt from their most recent research into the classroom, giving you access to up-to-date real-life examples and scenarios and critical business thinking. Reflecting the Business School’s wider strategy, Public Value is embedded within our teaching.

Many teaching and learning resources will be provided electronically through Learning Central. In order to successfully complete the course, you will need to work during and outside formal teaching sessions, and to make good use of the facilities provided.

Most modules involve a mixture of lectures and small group teaching (called classes, seminars, workshops or tutorials). In a lecture, the lecturer will mainly give an overview of a particular aspect of the module content. You will have opportunities to ask questions and be reflective in lectures. Classes and workshops provide you with the opportunity to practice techniques, discuss ideas, apply concepts and consolidate understanding of the topic.

In addition to timetabled classes, guest presentations by practitioners will also be available, enabling you to relate the knowledge provided by the lecturers to real-world examples.
