The MSc Operations and Logistics Management is a postgraduate degree in business and management with a focus on theoretical and practical skills. It is of particular relevance if you have recently completed an undergraduate degree in business management or engineering.
The programme provides the theoretical framework and practical skills that management professionals working in multinational corporations need in order to cope with an increasingly complex and global supply management environment. This is achieved by delivering the programme using an integrated approach with business management modules.
The Operations and Logistics Management programme at Surrey has two important benefits that distinguish it from similar programmes elsewhere. Firstly, we offer you training in the SAP system, the world-leading enterprise software suite. SAP experience is in high demand but very difficult to obtain at the graduate level. Our alliance with SAP ensures that you will be thoroughly acquainted with this important software application. Secondly, this programme offers a wider range of business and management-orientated modules than any other operations and logistics management programme, to make sure you are fully aware of the core management functions.
This programme comprises eight compulsory modules and a dissertation. Students will take four modules each semester plus a final dissertation module.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
