Supply Chain and Procurement Management

University of Strathclyde


Supply chain management is widely accepted as a critical business competency. It includes: initial design; procurement of materials and services; and processing and distribution to the customer either directly or through a network of distributors

In many companies, 80% or more of their turnover is spent outside the organisation. This course helps you become effective in managing this. It’s designed for those who work or are planning to work within supply chain management. It’s also suitable for those with a background in support functions such as: sales; maintenance; finance; and marketing.

You’ll gain an understanding of the issues, concepts, models, tools and techniques associated with supply chain management.

You can exit at the end of 21 months with a PgDip Supply Chain and Procurement Management.
