Please note: Applications for our Study Abroad routes are now closed for September 2021,we are still accepting applications for our one year route, applications are also open for our Study Abroad courses for January 2022 and will be opening soon for September 2022.

Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused master’s degree that will enhance your employability? This two-year course with study abroad develops broad business skills while also offering a specialist pathway in logistics and supply chain management (LSCM).

Specialist modules cover strategic procurement and how to manage the sustainability, quality and risks of supply chains. You’ll develop your research skills through a master’s dissertation or an investigative consultancy project.

In the second year of this course you’ll undertake study in another country for one semester. Employers often prefer applicants who have a strong international awareness and studying abroad will help you stand out from others. Our partner institutions offer study related to the areas of operations, logistics and supply chain management and will increase your experience.

The course culminates in either a master’s dissertation or, if you prefer, a consultancy project. The dissertation is discipline specific, whilst the group consultancy project - where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client - is positioned in an area of relevance to the programme.

There is no requirement to have studied business or LCSM at undergraduate level.

The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015 and is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS).
