This course critically analyses the increasing need for effectively managing the global supply chain.University of Derby offers the Global Supply Chain Management And Logistics programme. 


Key facts

Through a series of case study approaches, both live and historic, you will gain an appreciation of the vast nature of the supply chain, from tangible raw materials to the often intangible transfer of knowledge. You will critically analyse the infinite relationships involved in inward and outward logistics through the upstream and downstream operations. And through this gain an appreciation of how these chains should be managed to maximise customer satisfaction and value added, and therefore performance.The course will facilitate the analysis of the pressure to improve internal operations, how logistics strategies should evolve and be implemented and how integrated supply chains are developed. You will gain a critical appreciation of a breadth and depth of disciplines and how they culminate in impacting upon the supply chain, and how these impacts should be managed.
