This course is subject to validation.

The BA (Hons) Business and Supply Chain Management degree has been designed to give you the ideal balance between a broad understanding of business and a more focused emphasis on operations and supply chain management. The course is ideal for those with an interest in operations and supply chain management, who want to position themselves as a graduate with a broader knowledge and skills base.

You will undertake a balanced 50/50 split between business management content (where you explore business functions such as finance, marketing, and human resources) and operations and supply chain management topics such as International Operations Management, Applied Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Global Logistics and Inventory Management, Strategic and Sustainable Supply Chain Management, and Supply Chain Innovation. The degree will start with a heavy focus on broad business content, becoming gradually more supply chain management focused as you move towards final year.

This three-year course can also be converted to a four-year sandwich degree. This would involve a year out after completion of your second year, undertaking either a paid work placement, study abroad or a combination of the two. You also have the option in your final year to take part in a group-based consultancy project, where you work on a real business problem for a client company to further enhance your commercial skills.

The Business and Supply Chain Management course has been designed to prepare you for graduate employment in operations and supply chain management or broader business. The course content has been developed in partnership with industry bodies the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), providing you with professional-level knowledge and the option to undertake additional professional qualifications after graduating. It is also covered by the prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation for Newcastle Business School.

The University are actively seeking the following Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB) accreditations for the programme. However, these are subject to approval by the relevant accrediting body:

Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS)

Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT)
