Every organisation, from small Social Enterprises to Global Multinationals with thousands of employees must manage its supply chain and business operations. Glasgow Caledonian University's Glasgow School for Business and Society has developed this Masters to meet this demand. The programme is informed by research, sector professionals, the requirements of Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) and is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and transport (CILT).
This programme focuses on producing employable, responsible graduates, who are able to contribute effectively from the start of their employment. A unique aspect of the programme is that students can achieve Lean Yellow Belt certification as part of the course.
You will join with students from different cultures and backgrounds to develop an international awareness of managing business operations and supply chains. The opportunity of a work related activity combined with exploring examples, cases and contributions from leading commentators, scholars and researchers of operations management and supply chain management will result in an appreciation and understanding of theories and practices from different contexts around the globe.
International student start dates
For new international students, orientation events start on 14 September 2018. This extra time is specifically designed to assist new international students in settling into the UK and GCU prior to the start of general student induction and teaching.
There will be a whole host of fun and informative activities taking place during this period, including campus and city tours, as well as welcome events where you can meet other international students.
Providing you with the essential management theory and practice, our programme is double-accredited by leading professional bodies:
The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT)
The Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS)
Working in partnership with these professional bodies, we've built industry leading certification into our programme. Our programme is the only MSc which will provide you with 'Yellow Belt Recognition' on graduation.
'Yellow Belt Recognition' certifies students as being qualified to participate and contribute as full members of a Lean Kaizen improvement team and promote a lean work environment.
Student membership of both bodies is free and once graduated you will be exempt from the academic element for becoming a chartered member with 3 years experience.
In partnership with HM Forces, GCU has identified this programme is being particularly suited to military and ex-military men and women. Visit the HM Forces Careers Zone for more information on the services we provide.
