A Logistics and Supply Chain manager is not a master of just one specific area in the supply chain; he or she is a master of all areas including sourcing, planning, transportation, distribution, warehousing, inventory management, customer service and strategic leadership. Our one-year intensive programme is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to transform yourself into a well-rounded Logistics and Supply Chain Manager. You will participate in an intensive programme of combined classroom learning, company projects and self-led projects. In this environment you will both broader and deepen your theoretical knowledge about Logistics & Supply Chain Management while simultaneously developing your project management skills and cultivating your personal leadership capabilities. At the end of the programme you will be an expert in the functional areas of Logistics and Supply Chain Management and will be equipped with the skills necessary to manage a logistics organisation.
Excellence in logistics is fast becoming a key factor in companies' competitive advantage. Companies worldwide spend up to 20 or 30 percent of their overall costs on logistics, while proficiency in logistics is demanded in management positions throughout organisations.
In sectors as varied as transport, production and banking, a degree in Supply Chain Management will gain you a place among the decision-makers.
This Master programme is built on three pillars:
- Education consists of core, specialisation and elective modules. You can to a large extent determine your own course while developing all the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies of a professional in international business.
- Research is the focus of the final stage of our programmes. You will complete your studies with a thesis research project, which can revolve around a theoretical subject or a project executed for an existing organisation.
- Personal development is encouraged through a system that invites you to set your own particular study goals - and continually test those choices.
