Supply Chain & Sustainability Management

University of Strathclyde

Supply chain management is widely accepted as a critical business competency. It encompasses procurement of materials, processing and distribution of products and services to customers. In many companies, 80% or more of their turnover is spent outside the organisation and this course helps you become effective in managing this.

The course is aimed particularly at who will work within supply chain management and is suitable for those with a background in support functions such as sales, maintenance, finance and marketing. It has been designed to cover the latest industrial environmental issues, for example:

  • extended producer responsibility
  • the philosophy of design, manufacturing, and engineering management for the circular economy
  • This course is delivered in partnership by the Department of Design, Manufacturing & Engineering Management, and the Department of Management Science. This collaboration between engineering and business benefits from the combination of technical and organisational expertise. Find out more about the award winning Strathclyde Business School.
