As part of the Warehousing module on both the Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc and the Procurement and Supply Chain Management MSc programmes, students have the opportunity to visit a choice of warehouses in the local Milton Keynes area. By visiting the warehouses, students are able to experience the processes and operations within a warehouse first hand and see the practical application of knowledge and skills developed on the course.
Milton Keynes’ optimal location, at the south-eastern periphery of England’s central logistics hub, provides businesses with unrivalled access to the UK national market, the high income ‘London and South East England’ market and Europe (via the Channel Tunnel and southern England ports). Our students benefit from this ideal location, visiting the warehouses of various large UK and international retailers including John Lewis, River Island, Travis Perkins and Waitrose.
