Acquire Specialist Knowledge in International Logistics and Supply Chain Management

We live in a globalized world where businesses increasingly opt for operation centralization. In this environment, logistics, purchasing, procurement and distribution of their products or services become essential pillars.

In the Master of Logistics and Supply Chain Management you will not only deal with logistics processes, operations research, transportation models and value chains, but you will also be sensitized to current topics such as sustainability, smart mobility and capacity planning.

The overarching aim of the postgraduate supply chain program is to provide graduates with tools and insights on how globalized logistics systems can be set up and sustainably maintained.

You will also gain more in-depth knowledge of data-driven subjects such as data science and analytics or international operations management. At the same time, you will dive deeper into management topics like leadership, organizational development or project management.
