Overview

In your first year, we build on the maths you did at school, introducing techniques and approaches that help organisations to plan and make better decisions. You will learn to think statistically and analyse data. You’ll learn how to make forecasts and how to use data to understand complex behaviour and be introduced to the operations and strategic business contexts in which these ideas can be applied. You will also take a ‘live’ module, working in small teams to deliver a project for a client in the Lancaster area.

Learning outcomes

You can choose to specialise at the end of the first year, selecting a main track from Business Analytics; Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management; Project Management; and Information Systems. You can also take modules from other tracks alongside modules in your main track to widen your knowledge and skill set.

The Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management track includes: Supply Chain Management, Purchasing, Forecasting, Inventory Planning, Risk Analysis and many other relevant topics aimed at developing your understanding of specific business problems faced by operations managers.
