Hull University Business School
This joins the existing BSc Logistics accreditation gained by the Business School in 2011.
The MSc programme provides a thorough understanding of the management, planning and coordination of supply chains, an essential area which is key to the success of any organisation operating on a global scale.
Dr Riccardo Mogre, academic director of the MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management at Hull University Business School and a key player in achieving the accreditation said:
“The CIPS qualification is critical for career development in the logistics and supply chain industry. While the Business School can provide cutting-edge academic education and preparation, CIPS is the authoritative industry lead body, with access to industrialists and practitioners familiar with real-life logistics and supply chain expertise.”
This is the Hull University Business School’s third link with CIPS as John Britton, managing director of BCG Bridgepoint Ltd, which is a tenant of the school’s Logistics Institute, is also Chair of CIPS Humberside branch.
