Global Supply Chain Management
Distribution and transportation is a key part of the integrated supply chain. Distribution and transportation activities are associated with the movement of all types of material from the point of origin to the point of use or consumption. This movement creates time, place, and quantity utilities for the commodities moved. With the explosion of supply chain management over the last several years, the utilities created by transportation have taken on heightened meaning. The management of product, information, and cash flows in the supply chain are all influenced by transportation cost and quality. Back to top

Strategic Marketing
This unit integrates the "tools" and the framework that practitioners will use in applying marketing. The understanding of marketing requires the understanding of its concepts but the successful application of it requires the ability of analysis, evaluation and synthesis; analysis of the situation, evaluation of it and the synthesis of a solution. Furthermore, effective marketing application requires the ability to decide and implement under conditions of uncertainty and restrictions of resources.
In this unit the students will be expected to develop their analytical, critical and synthetic abilities regarding the elements of the marketing environment. They will be expected to draw on their knowledge of different aspects of marketing and provide complete solutions to marketing problems. Such solutions will be expected to be applied in different sectors of economic activity. Back to top

Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Traditional Business and Logistics courses have dealt with the individual processes associated with developing new products, buying materials, transforming them, and shipping them to customers, none have dealt with the integration of information and material flows across multiple organisations. The integration of organisations within a single supply chain is becoming recognized as a core competitive strategy that will distinguish the winners from the losers beyond the year 2000. As organizations seek to continuously service customers faster, cheaper, and better, managers have come to realize that they cannot do it alone, but that they must align themselves with the best organizations upstream and downstream in order to jointly reap the rewards. The existing experiences must be synthesized to create a managerial perspective of the core tasks and challenges required to effectively develop supply chains in the future. Because supply chains involve members from every single function within organizations, engineers, purchasing managers, operations managers, logistics managers, sales personnel, financials etc, the unit philosophy is intended to provide insights into what a supply chain is, why it is becoming important, and the future challenges that lie ahead for managers.

The dissertation represents a piece of individual and original research based on an approved topic of the student’s choice related to the course and selected in consultation with tutors. The term ‘originality’ here does not necessarily imply that the dissertation will develop new theoretical insights or models but that it clearly demonstrates the development of new insights and knowledge in the candidates own mind and work.
