Program description

This course is designed to provide you the knowledge and abilities you need to succeed even if you lack the self-assurance or credentials to enroll in an undergraduate degree. The foundation year is perfect if you need help getting started in school and learning study habits.

Apple, Amazon, Cargolux, Hilton hotels, Jaguar, McDonald's, Musgrave, Phillips, and Tesco are just a few of the companies where our supply chain management academics have previously worked. The creators of this curriculum aided the European Commission and the United Kingdom Government in creating economic and policy frameworks for the supply chain. Due to our extensive industry ties, including those with NOVUS Trust network members, we are able to provide you with real-world business challenges throughout your degree program. This will educate you on the industry and prepare you for any challenges you may face in your chosen job. There is a clear progression from one module to the next, and seamless transitions between topics facilitate the acquisition of skills in a well-organized fashion.

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) approves this course, which means you can skip the prerequisite classes for Chartered Membership and gain access to valuable resources in the logistics and transportation field. It is also being accredited by CIPS.
