What Is a Logistics Degree?
A logistic manager will organise the storage and distribution of goods. You will need to make sure that the right products are delivered on time, to the right location and at a good cost. Other aspects of your job may include transportation, stock control and warehousing, and you will need to understand the whole supply chain so you can co-ordinate effectively.
What will I study?
You will learn how logistics management can enhance a business by implementing innovative solutions to logistics and supply chain management challenges. You will be prepared for future careers in transport management, production planning, procurement management, fleet management and distribution management.
The first year will introduce you to the core principles of the global business environment, focussing on the political, legal and socio-economic factors at national and international levels. You will examine the concept of running a modern business operation and will learn the fundamentals of logistics management in the transport industry, examining the basic principles of the movement of goods and people.
In the second year you will explore logistics planning activities for local, national and international trade. You will also learn about international sourcing and study the design and operation of logistics systems. You will continue to study the concepts of business management in preparation for your future career in this sector.
The final year focuses on managing operations globally and teaching you to think about logistics on an international scale appropriate for modern day business. You will also learn business analytics in a logistics context and learn how to manipulate data and evaluate emerging trends in the field.
