I feel like with your experience you should really be aiming for an MBA. But the class of MBA programs you are looking at is low. What's preventing you from applying to the MBAs at the better schools? 

You can get international experience in the supply chain industry without pursuing a degree. If this is code for wanting to work in the UK, then you absolutely should be looking at better schools.

Strathclyde MBA is very good and well renowned. If you have got an admit from Strathclyde Business School then you should accept that. Their MBA programme covers all the concepts of business and management and they have a very good placement record too. So if you are thinking of doing an MBA this coming intake then you should definitely go for Strathclyde MBA

A top SCM qualification like MIT Scale or a CIPS accredited MSc in the UK might be better than a general management MBA.
