Academic Programs

Master Program

  • MSc in Management (Supply Chain Logistics) (1 year): This is a problem-based learning program that mixes academic robustness with applied, practical and inter-disciplinary perspectives. The program consists of a set of core and elective modules, culminating in a practice-based business project or a research-based dissertation.
  • Accreditation: Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), it is designed to give you a thorough grounding in the theoretical and practical aspects of managing supply chains, enabling you to put classroom knowledge into practice.
  • International Experience: During the International Study Tour elective, students will betaken to a European destination for a week. This activity provides opportunity to be exposed to the challenges of global business, make new contacts, and help stand out in the competitive jobs market.
  • Admissions Requirements: The equivalent of a UK first or upper second class hons degree. If you are an international student who does not meet the requirements for direct entry to this degree, you may be eligible to take a pre-Masters pathway program at the Durham University International Study Center.

Training Workshops

  • Negotiating Maritime Boundaries (Hague, Netherlands): This workshop, led by some of the world’s most experienced boundary negotiators, is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills required to conclude a successful maritime boundary agreement.
