I will be completing my MSc. in Logistics and Supply Chain at the University of Nottingham on the 20th of September 2013. In this course, I have studied an array of subjects in the Supply Chain field such as Facility planning and Location, Management Science for Decision Making, Project Management, Finance and Accounting and many more which have increased my knowledge not only in the field but in other related areas. I am confident to say that if I am posted into any organisation, the knowledge I have gained will be of great benefit to the company.
