Logistics and Transport Management
Logistics and Transport Management
The globalised market, rising volume of goods traffic and the steadily growing logistics industry require highly trained professionals and managers. The degree programme “Logistics and Transportation Management”, in close cooperation with international logistics companies provides students with this technical expertise. In addition to traditional topics like traffic and transport, the programme also covers supply chain management, sustainability management and risk management. As a special feature, students can develop their careers further by participating in a business simulation game.
Consumers and companies take it for granted that the right product will be available at the right time and location, and at the price and quality they expect. This is possible thanks to increasingly digitalised and international transport, warehousing and transshipment processes, which are planned and implemented by logistics professionals.
