What do you consider a 'decent salary?' 

There's no concrete data here, but we can look at a proxy in the current FT Master in Finance rankings, which show that Strath MSc Finance grads make around $51,000 USD three years after graduation. That's 37k GBP (after three years of raises).

I'd imagine that supply chain grads would probably make somewhat less than this.

I'm surprised Cranfield isn't on your shortlist. It's recently been ranked the 2nd best supply chain MSc in the UK and in the top dozen worldwide. I believe there are variations of the course that are more procurement orientated too.

I used to work in supply chain consulting in the UK in the late 90s and early 2000s and Cranfield was always considered one of the best schools to study supply chain management. 

Have a look at the 2021 CIPS/Hays Procurement Salary Guide which will give you an insight into UK salaries

I agree with the Cranfield suggestion. Any of the UK schools ranked in the FT Master in Management ranking would most likely provide better career growth / salaries.
