You will also study both financial and cost accounting, increasing your knowledge of financial decision making in areas such as product costing and investing.



Through the programme you will:



develop in-depth understanding of operations management and accounting relating to the manufacturing and service sectors

learn how to apply this knowledge in a thorough, systematic, informed and creative way in order to advance the effectiveness and competitiveness of organisations

develop knowledge and understanding of how an integrated approach to operations and supply chain management can impact on business performance

appreciate the importance of organisational context in operations management, including product/service type, mode of service, size of company, type of industry, stage in the business life cycle and degree of internationalisation.



Organisations are constantly seeking to reduce costs, shorten production and distribution times and better manage risk. Effective management of these functions is crucial and qualified practitioners are increasingly in demand.



This programme will equip you to pursue a career in either operations management or management accounting in a variety of sectors such as health, manufacturing, transport, engineering and purchasing.

The degree is closely aligned to the MSc Operations and Supply Chain Management but also includes both financial and cost accounting, giving students with an interest in finance a greater knowledge of financial decision making in areas such as product costing and investing.
