UCAM is not a good choice. Perhaps consider https://london.ac.uk/courses/supply-chain-management

Thank you Duncan, i just want to explain my situation hoping to have an advice from your side

I am Egyptian, 47 years old with over 20 years of experience in logistics and now i want to move to the academic field and study MBA and then PHD.

I live in the middle east so i guess the best choice is an online option and i was thinking to do MBA not Msc preferably in logistics from a recognized body in the middle east, knowing that i want to advance immediately to PHD.

Why an MBA? Why not an MRes? Although I guess there are not many online... if any

Speaking as an MBA who is currently doing my PhD, I strongly support the idea of an MRes, MPhil or MSc in research. An MBA has none of the research training that a PhD needs, and a master's in research will not only save you a year of your PhD but also will allow you focus onto meaningful contributions to the academic literature.

When I was doing my MSc, I talked with the program coordinator about my decision to do PhD. He talked with the professors and I did 2 publications during my masters year. It was very helpful, and it will really help your PhD applications. Most professors will look at your application very differently if you already have publications

So whatever you choose, maybe contact the university (even better the head of the program you will do) beforehand to see what support they can offer you for your PhD while you do your masters studies.

As far as options go, there are very few online PhDs, Leicester is probably the one you are looking for. I think they offer MPhil and then continue for PhD.

It seems very similar to other courses with the same accreditation. Also see Hull, generally a much better university: https://online.hull.ac.uk/courses/msc-logistics-and-supply-chain-management

The University of London also offers an Online MSc in Supply Chain Management and Global Logistics.

It's *relatively* affordable, especially if you're from one of the countries that UoL considers "Band A" - which includes many countries in Africa, Asia, and some in Europe like Kosovo.

Arizona State University's online MSc through edX is also a good choice I think.

Relatively affordable at $19K.

That's an interesting program that I hadn't heard about before. Also it looks like the layout for the tuition isn't all at once - you pursue the edX component first, before moving onto the ASU part. Interesting!
