This programme presents you with new and future-oriented perspectives on logistics and supply chain management and deepens your understanding of that area. It utilizes a unique cross-disciplinary approach, combining logistics and supply chain management with business marketing, purchasing, management, economic geography and contract law.
In the optional second year, economics and informatics will also be among the subjects involved in the programme. Within the individual courses, you will also be introduced to live cases through a number of study visits to different companies. This is combined with learning applications of analytical tools and models through case illustrations and discussions.
The programme allows you to earn, after one year, a 60-credit master degree relevant to the area of study. It also provides you with the option to continue your master studies for a second year, leading to a 120-credit master degree. The benefits of continuing with the second year of studies are that you are given an opportunity to study abroad at one of our 200 partner universities in the first semester of the second year, and you receive an education that makes you better prepared to take on cutting-edge research and doctoral studies in a particular subject area. As an alternative to studying abroad for one semester in the second year, you may work in business- or government-related projects that will integrate your academic knowledge with real life experience.
Students will gain knowledge and understanding of the supply chain network and its development, as well as the tools needed to analyse, develop, and change chains.
The Master’s degree prepares students for international careers – specifically within the areas of purchasing, logistics, and marketing.
