Supply chain: Warwick or Cranfield?


Sialys

Hello,

I am a French student in Top School Centrale Lyon and I want to study supply chain management.
My school only allow me to apply to one university and I have a dilemna between WMG and Cranfield.
They both have a good reputation on this MSc.

2 things are bothering me : quality of courses, student life.
I also know that the number of courses hours in Warwick is low: only 10 weeks and I am quite worried about that.

Can you please give me your advice and if anyone attend theses MSc tell me about your experience.

Thanks.

The WMG courses are aimed at part-time students in industry, so the courses are concentrated into a few hours. I think that, if you;re looking for a full academic experience and for a school with good support for finding work, then Cranfield is better.

Neither campus is in a great location, but Cranfield will be cheaper.

Not to complicate your decision - but Cass also offers an MSc in Supply Chain, Trade & Finance, which might be worth looking into.

The course at CASS seems to be leaning toward shipping in its emphasis.

There are actually two at Cass: An MSc in Shipping, Trade & Finance and one in Supply Chain, Trade & Finance.

Students in the supply chain-focused one don't take many of the shipping courses (like Shipping Investment and Finance, Shipping Risk Management, etc.) but instead take courses like Supply Chain Management. There is some overlap in the more general courses in terms of the broader topics.

So you think that studying SLCM even in full-time is not aimed at full-time students.
So Cranfield is better?

I think the Cranfield course is also modular weeks and not full-time.
