Our three-year BSc Business Management programmes share a generic first year, during which you will take seven compulsory modules from across the range of business disciplines, providing a broad understanding of business and management contexts and processes. This programme allows you to specialise in the area of Logistics and Operations Management. It reflects the evolution of the study of logistics from its original context of transport to its present setting of business logistics. The subject is now well established with a solid basis in theory and research and the programme has been designed to reflect developments in the business world where, when managing supply chain, the mode of transport is considered less important than the process.
