Developed in partnership with Arnhem Business School (HAN University, Netherlands), this international MSc course will develop your ability to initiate and carry out advanced analysis, research and problem solving in the field of logistics and supply chain management.
If you study this MSc, you will study the first semester at the University of Westminster, and then have the choice either to continue studying in London (Westminster route) or to spend the second semester at our partner institution in the Netherlands (Arnhem route).
