University of Greenwich

Course Introduction

Companies need to source and buy materials, so procurement and purchasing skills are much in demand. Our business purchasing and supply chain management graduates have the skills to meet this need.

This degree allows you to specialise in business purchasing and supply chain management in sectors such as retail, service, manufacturing and fashion. You'll study modules in processes and value chains, project management, economics and international purchasing.

This is one of very few purchasing degrees in the UK, and the course helps to meet a demand for qualified personnel who can efficiently source and buy materials and resources. Our graduates have gone on to roles in buying, procurement and logistics in companies such as KPMG, ASDA and Ford.
