Bournemouth University to Offer New CPD Course on Supply Chain Management

Bournemouth University (BU) is launching a new Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course on Supply Chain Management. Delivered in person across four sessions in September (8, 15, 22 and 29) at BU’s Talbot Campus, and led by a team of experienced academics and practitioners, the course will cover a range of topics, including:

    1. Managing supply chain operations
    2. B2B marketing
    3. Smart technologies for supply chain resilience
    4. The economics of value chains

The course has been designed to help businesses respond to supply chain disruptions caused by events like Covid-19, Brexit and the energy crisis. It will help people and organisations to identify and adopt strategies and tools that can help them overcome challenges such as increased costs and red tape, making their operations more efficient and resilient. It will also provide attendees with the chance to network with each other, sharing ideas and best practices.

The course is open to senior business managers and anyone interested in developing their skills in supply chain management. The standard fee is £1,000, but BCP Council will fund 50% of the cost for the first 15 organisations based in their area that book onto the course. Alternatively, Dorset Chamber of Commerce & Industry members can claim 10% off if they don’t qualify for the 50% funding.

The course is part of BU’s commitment to acting as a catalyst for growth, using its skills and expertise to boost skills and advance the region.

This course is not CPD accredited but is delivered by an AACSB accredited Business School which has also earned the Small Business Charter Award in recognition of its significant contributions to small businesses, student entrepreneurship and the local economy.
