This innovative postgraduate course aims to unite the operational, financial and technical aspects of management in the waste and recycling industries. It will equip you the knowledge and skills you will need to become more effective in the sustainable resource sector.

The course will introduce you to the broad perspectives of operations management before focussing on the areas of this discipline which are of greatest relevance in this dynamic sector: project management and control of quality and performance.

Coverage of financial management and sustainable business development will round out your understanding of managerial activities in terms of financial and stakeholder implications.

You will also have the opportunity to complete independent learning directly relevant to the challenges faced by your own organisations. Finally, you will complete a dissertation on the research problem of your choice, supported by training in research methods and guided by an experienced postgraduate supervisor.

The course is delivered 100% online through the individual and group learning features of our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and extensive use is made of online media including film, industry and academic websites.


Core modules:

* Operations Management
* Sustainable Business Development
* Project Management
* Finance for Non-Financial Managers
* Research Methods
* Value Engineering
* Independent Learning Module
* Dissertation


All modules will be assessed through online coursework: there are no examinations.


* A minimum lower second class honours degree from a UK University (2:2). Holders of other awards, including those from non-UK universities will be considered on the equivalence of their qualifications.
* Entrants will be expected to demonstrate previous relevant supervisory experience, preferably two years at junior or middle management level.
* Entrants will be employed within the Sustainable Resource, Waste and Recycling Sector.
