Supply Chain Management with Humanitarian Challenges MSc

This course provides the essential framework concepts and toolkit required for the strategic management of humanitarian logistics and the supply chain. In addition to studying key skills concerning the effective and efficient management of the supply chain you will also learn about humanitarian problems caused by a range of current trends, such as migration in the Mediterranean, the use of chemical weapons, desertification and global inequality.

Within a business context, it is now recognised that one of the main ways in which competitive advantage can be gained, is through the effective and efficient management of the supply chain. The relationship between business and human rights is also increasingly raising profound and intriguing problems of law and policy. You will be challenged to consider how these potentially impact on the logistics sector, and best business practice, and will also have the opportunity to research one aspect of these themes in more detail.
