Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc - 2019 Entry
Full time 12 Month(s)
Many western companies manufacture overseas. Massive logistics hubs now exist in countries such as China. Demand has therefore never been higher for people who can apply quality management science to supply chain and logistics management. This course can give you the skills to achieve this.
This programme is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and was developed in consultation with the industry. It focuses on the practical aspects of logistics and supply chain management rather than academic theory.
We offer a research-led teaching environment which is particularly strong in operations management. Faculty members of the Centre for Productivity and Efficiency teach on this programme, as do members of the Centre for Transport and Logistics.
You will learn about all of the major elements of Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and will have the opportunity to explore the most recent developments in the field. As well as subject-specific knowledge, we also teach problem-solving, critical thinking and professional skills.
To prepare you for the world of work, you will take part in a three to four-month long supervised real-life project. As a consultant to one of our client companies, this project helps builds your professional skills. It also forms the basis of your dissertation.
There is a large demand for logistics and supply chain analysts with good modelling skills. Our dedicated industry liaison manager has links with opportunities in production planning and process, forecasting and logistics optimisation. Many of our graduates move on to work as logistics analysts, supply chain analysts, business consultants, business analysts and database managers.

The University will not increase the Tuition Fee you are charged during the course of an academic year.
If you are studying on a programme of more than one year's duration, the tuition fees for subsequent years of your programme are likely to increase each year. The way in which continuing students' fee rates are determined varies according to an individual's 'fee status' as set out on our fees webpages.
What are tuition fees for?
Studying at a UK University means that you need to pay an annual fee for your tuition, which covers the costs associated with teaching, examinations, assessment and graduation.
The fee that you will be charged depends on whether you are considered to be a UK, EU or overseas student. Visiting students will be charged a pro-rata fee for periods of study less than a year.
Our annual tuition fee is set for a 12 month session, which usually runs from October to September the following year.
How does Lancaster set overseas tuition fees?
Overseas fees, alongside all other sources of income, allow the University to maintain its abilities across the range of activities and services. Each year the University's Finance Committee consider recommendations for increases to fees proposed for all categories of student and this takes into account a range of factors including projected cost inflation for the University, comparisons against other high-quality institutions and external financial factors such as projected exchange rate movements.
What support is available towards tuition fees?
Lancaster University's priority is to support every student in making the most of their education. Many of our students each year will be entitled to bursaries or scholarships to help with the cost of fees and/or living expenses. You can find out more about financial support, studentships, and awards for postgraduate study on our website.
