Glasgow Caledonian University

The MSc International Operations and Supply Chain Management programme equips students with a comprehensive understanding, knowledge and practice of principles, processes and leading-edge approaches to international operations, sustainable practice and managing operations, logistics and supply chain challenges across a wide range of sectors and international environments in a responsible manner.  The programme develops both necessary and desirable skills and knowledge for a successful career in this growing field. 

Glasgow University's Academic Partnership with CILT means that the assessment criteria leads to 'Yellow Belt Recognition' within the programme curriculum.


The syllabus encompasses the study of sustainable business operations, quality management, performance improvement, managing logistics challenges and supply chain networks and partnerships for enhanced strategic positioning. Also covered are the role and value of innovative technologies for supply chain integration and the management of projects, together with tools and techniques for managing risk across all operations to ensure sustainable organisational performance.  The programme also includes the study of contemporary geopolitical and societal challenges, global business strategy and the financial performance of organisations, as well as a focus on the development of personal and professional skills with emphasis on managing self and others, responsible leadership, managing diversity and developing cross-cultural awareness.

The programme therefore provides students with a comprehensive, intellectually challenging, and vocationally significant education giving students a competitive edge in the market.

The student learning experience is enriched through the use of contemporaneous learning technologies and a range of Transition and Study Skills workshops to enhance student engagement and employability.

The programme is unique in offering two dissertation routes:

  • Traditional dissertation assuming three forms with students choosing one from the following options: Applied Research project, Inquiry Project or a Business Consultancy project.
  • Alternative Professional Practice Project which provides additional value through experiential learning and engendering a comprehensive and pragmatic approach to the design, investigation and evaluation of inter-related operations and supply chain challenges which impact on organisational performance.

Option to study full-time or part-time.
