The FdSc Logistics Management degree provide civilian logistics specialists with the opportunity to enhance managerial and academic skills within their particular area of operational expertise.
Logistics underpins the ability to project the success of organisations. This capability must always ensure effectiveness and the attainment of organisational strategy, but must remain affordable in resource terms.
The University of Lincoln acknowledges that these requirements call for a high level of managerial underpinning and an associated level of academic expertise.
A range of teaching and learning methods are used on the FdSc Logistics Management programme, central to this is Blackboard which is an online teaching and learning platform.
Teaching on the course is through a range of methods such as online sessions, directed reading and videos with the aim to facilitate a community of practice learners.
