University of Greenwich

Course Introduction

Our extended degree in business purchasing and supply chain management gives you the skills to enter a field where suitably qualified graduates are in high demand.

Our extended business purchasing and supply chain management degree is identical to the three-year degree but incorporates a foundation year to prepare you for the rest of your study.

Modules in this degree cover topics such as processes and value chains, project management, economics and international purchasing.

There are few degrees in purchasing available in the UK, and the course at Greenwich offers ideal training for graduates in sourcing and buying materials. Our graduates are in high demand and have gone on to roles in purchasing, procurement and logistics in companies such as KPMG, ASDA and Ford.
