BA Honours Business Management. BA Honours Business Management (Supply Chain and Logistics)
Introduction to the Programme
In today’s global business environment, the success of a business is increasingly determined by the speed and efficiency of its supply chains. To compete in this fast moving global marketplace, organisations demand employees that have both a broad understanding of how businesses operate and specialist knowledge of supply chain processes.
Tailored towards ambitious students who are keen to apply theory to practice in a business environment, this course equips you with both a broad understanding of how organisations work, acquire and use resources, and meet the needs of their customers. You will learn specialist knowledge and skills on how companies manage materials, information and money as they flow through the chain of organisations involved in creating and delivering products.
In years one and two you will study modules that develop essential skills and knowledge in business management and the wider business environment. In the final year you will study strategic management together with 3 supply chain specific modules. These are designed to raise your awareness of the critical issues related to managing operation and how to solve problems, as well as enhancing your capabilities in sourcing and managing suppliers, and measuring performance. You will learn to work effectively in teams, gain analytical and creative problem solving skills, and be able to present and communicate using a variety of media.
Note: Both core and optional modules are constantly updated and under review. As with most academic programmes, please remember that it is possible that a module may not be offered in any particular year, for instance because too few students opt for it. Middlesex University reserves the right to vary or withdraw any course or module.
